Jay Martin - President and Product Design Principal
"Designing, developing, and producing products that surprise, delight, and meet a critical need energizes me." After a first career as a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Jay co-founded Martin Product Design to directly engage in pursuing this goal. "I truly appreciate the opportunity I had working and learning with students at the university. MPD has provided similar learning opportunities, and we have the chance to produce great products. What more could you ask for?"
Liam Martin - Chief Operations Officer
As a co-founder of MPD, Liam Martin has found that his degree in Psychology has been very helpful: "So much of product development is about people. Observation of the response of people to problems and devices designed to mitigate those problems is essential to good design." Liam has also found that his training and experience has been essential to business development: "Building a business is also about people. This goes from the way you work with others in your company, to others in companies you work with, to the people you produce products for."
James Guither – Chief Business Development Officer and Product Design Principal
