Martin Lachance, Founding Partner
Martin brings over 18 years’ experience as a financial analyst, accountant, and technology consultant for companies like Gillette, Teradyne, and News Internet Services. During that time, he was involved in some of the first web hosting ventures, serving clients like Major League Baseball and Fox Network. He was also part of the team that setup Europe’s first ISP for News International/British Telecom.
Martin was hired away by Toast Technologies to startup and manage their services division. While at Toast, he met Scott Belhumeur, who joined him as a partner at Citara Systems in 2003.
His strong financial background, coupled with his successful track record of establishing and managing complex corporate technology environments led him to believe that smaller companies should have access to high-quality technology support at reasonable prices. In 2001, Martin founded his own company, which immediately attracted a loyal client base—all of whom are still with Citara Systems.
Martin holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance from Northeastern University.
