Marc Martin

Marc got his undergraduate degree from Southeastern Massachusetts University (SMU) in 1979, and worked for Hewlett Packard in Palo Alto during the early boom times in Silicon Valley.  He moved back east to Rhode Island, got his graduate degree in Ocean Engineering/Acoustics at URI and spent 2 years doing research projects for the navy (mapping the north wall of the Gulf Stream and tracking submarines and torpedoes in the arctic).

Marc then moved to Massachusetts where he worked for two different start-up companies (1 successful) in the semiconductor equipment field (non-contact measurements and x-ray lithography), and ran his own consulting business.  In the early 90’s, Marc began a 20+ year career at Bose Corporation, managing the test group, and retired from there in 2015.

Throughout his career, Marc has been involved in many aspects of running successful businesses (and in some cases, not so successful businesses), and has traveled extensively in his work.  He is presently retired and living in New Hampshire with his wife Janice.  Hobbies include skiing, hiking, chopping down trees for the wood stove, and baking bread and treats for both Janice and his favorite stepson Sean, who is a resident at one of the Life-Skills, Inc. group homes.  Marc joined the board in December 2019.
