Chris Martin is the CEO of Cylinder Services Inc., a US Department of Transportation and Transport Canada approved Independent Inspection Agency.
“I have many years of experience navigating government regulatory requirements and business development. My professional experience has given me a firm grasp on compliance and business development. Throughout my career I have been a member of standards writing bodies in the US and Canada. I have also served on technical committees advising the US government on the adoption of industry standards into US law. My experiences have provided me with a knowledge of collaborative decision-making which I feel is critical for good governance. As a small business owner, I understand the challenges surrounding the provision of healthcare benefits to employees and how it impacts them. Having lost health care benefits twice since the Affordable Care Act became law I also understand how it impacts the family and would like nothing more than to be a part of the solution.
As a veteran I’ve always had the inclination to serve and if chosen as a member of the board I would commit myself to ensure the adoption of sound policy so that CGHC can continue to serve its membership in the most efficient and responsive way possible. I feel that healthcare coverage should not only be readily available and affordable, but also much less complicated.”
