Working out of Old Town on the Utilities team, Martens manages projects for gas, electric and municipal utility clients, providing services in landbase development, customized mapping, E911 address data management, and GIS consulting. Leveraging his strengths in GIS conceptual design and implementation, Martens provides clients with a strategic view of potential solutions to best meet their specific needs, working with them to identify actionable items and initiate the implementation process.
