Jody A. Martin
President and CEO

A seasoned professional with an extensive background in many aspects of Agribusiness. This goes back to his roots of being involved with Joe Martin and Sons Farm, a 3500 acre family operation of row crops. He has also been affiliated with other family businesses: Kingstree Tractor Company, Kingstree Auto Service Center, Martin Telephone Contracting Company and Martin Enterprises. Mr. Martin served as County Extension Agent with Clemson Extension Service for 24 years, working in the following capacities: Row Crop Agricultural Agent, State Wide Muscadine/Value Added Initiatives, Senior Agent as well as Lead Extension Agent. He has conducted numerous educational programs, demonstrations, conferences, meetings, media events, etc. He has served on many boards, committees and organizations. Mr. Martin took advantage of an early out retirement, so he could passionately pursue opportunities with agribusiness development.

Mr. Martin's experiences range from production, feasibility studies, to market development and beyond. He has strong connections with key individuals in the agribusiness leadership, as well as the ability to collaborate with a variety of people and organizations. He has a good understanding of people skills and the communication skills to connect with others individually and in group settings. His skill set also includes planning, organizing and moderating meetings and conferences. Mr. Martin has a good understanding of both the private and public business sectors. He has extensive business background as an entrepreneur with his experience with family and personal businesses. He has worked with several non profits over the years. He knows how to keep his priorities in order and has a very diverse background to enable him to adapt well to most situations.

I’m very interested and involved in many aspects of agribusiness to help improve rural economic development. It is for this reason that I started ‘Palmetto Consulting Solutions, LLC’ a few years back. I am passionate about agribusiness and the great folks involved with this industry. I have the distinct pleasure to be involved in many aspects of agriculture across the state, region and nation. I have a desire to assist in any capacity I can in the future. We at PCS have partnered with a great team of folks with the mission to ‘Add Value to the Future of Agribusiness in South Carolina and Beyond’. I hope we have the opportunity to work together to better the lives and lifestyle of everyone involved! Jody A. Martin, President and CEO
