Full Name
James Martin
Job Title
James Martin is CEO of the New Orleans based company, Gulf Wind Technology. One of their founding missions is to develop and demonstrate technologies that will remove barriers for offshore wind power in the Gulf of Mexico, through innovations in safety, rotor design, and system operation in weather events such as hurricanes.

James moved from the UK to Louisiana in 2010 to establish the worlds first advanced manufacturing and technology center for Wind Turbine blades, which was based at the NASA Michoud campus in New Orleans East. James holds a Design and Technology degree from the University of Plymouth and an MBA from the Freeman Business School at Tulane University.

Over the past decade, James has enjoyed driving consortia relationships in the Gulf of Mexico region, including STEM, College and University, as well as businesses looking to diversify their technical expertise from the established energy industry into Onshore Wind, which has been a booming in states such as neighboring Texas. With the US being an emerging leader in the 'full spectrum' Renewable Energy transition, the team are looking to step up their efforts and focus on driving technology solutions in the upcoming Offshore Wind framework.
