Demonstrating his commitment to building a strong, experienced team, Governor Chris Christie named Bob Martin to serve as Commissioner of Environmental Protection. Commissioner Martin was a policy advisor to Governor Christie during his 2009 campaign and assisted in shaping the Administration’s energy and environmental policies. During the transition period, he worked with then Lieutenant Governor-elect Kim Guadagno on the Red Tape Review Commission and chaired the energy and utilities Transition Team.
Commissioner Martin has worked to transform the DEP into a more efficient and customer service-oriented agency, in order to more effectively protect New Jersey’s air, land, water and natural resources while making a positive contribution to the State’s economy.
An accomplished business and industry leader with recognized expertise in energy and utilities, in 2008 Commissioner Martin retired as a partner with over 25 years of experience at Accenture LLP, the world’s largest business and technology consulting firm. He lived in England from 1991 to 1995, and has worked with large utility and energy companies in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and throughout Europe.
Active in the community, he formerly served as the chairman of the Salvation Army Advisory Board of Greater New York and a member of the Princeton Healthcare System Foundation board. He had also served on the Board of Trustees at the Chapin School in Princeton on the Finance Advisory Committee for Hopewell Township.
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Commissioner Martin earned a bachelor of arts in Economics and Sociology from Boston College in 1979 and an MBA from The George Washington University in 1982.
