Phil Martin, MBA’s founder and Director of Software Development, earned his BA degree from North Carolina State University with a major in Economics and later received his MBA from Georgia State University with a double major in Marketing and Finance. He started his professional career in the late 1960’s as a Programmer/Analyst on IBM mainframes writing in Cobol and Assembler Language. It was a time of growth for the computer industry and Phil was there to grow with it.
During the ‘70s, Phil was employed as a Systems Consultant. He was the On-Line Systems Project Manager for the Bank of Montreal’s implementation of a nation-wide MasterCard authorization and settlement system. He was later given assignments to facilities manage the Peachtree Data Center in Atlanta and as Director of Consulting Services for a local software consulting firm.
Phil founded Martin Business Associates as a proprietorship in 1981 to extend consulting services and custom software development to the emerging mini-computer market. As mini-computers gave way to networked micro-computers, he incorporated the business as MBA Business Software and in 1988, became one of the earliest resellers and the first Master Developer in Atlanta for State of the Art’s MAS 90 product, now Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200.
