Read Martin's Story

Martin Neath, who helped build Tivoli Systems, Inc., now an IBM company, into a multi-billion dollar software and service operation, joined Adams Capital Management in August 2001 as a General Partner. Martin was the seventh employee and first application engineer at Tivoli when he began his career there in 1990, after working at Texas Instruments for five years. While at Tivoli, Martin was responsible for product strategy and development, marketing, customer support, product services and information technology, and was extensively involved in sales and customer service. Tivoli went public in 1995 and was acquired by IBM a year later.

Martin served as Executive Vice President of Tivoli overseeing much of the company's day-to-day operations, including five business units, engineering, corporate marketing, customer service, training and education, office of the Chief Technology Officer, and North American sales. In 1998, he was named a member of the IBM Senior Management Group (SMG), a team of the top 300 executives from around the world charged with the overall responsibility for IBM's strategy and business execution. After retiring from IBM in 1999, Martin helped build several young emerging growth, technology companies in the Austin area, including two years as President and COO of Works, Inc., a provider of procurement applications to midsize companies.
