Author & Speaker
Joanna Martinez helps businesses and individuals understand technology, improve processes, and align with stakeholders. Sometimes that means advising senior executives directly; frequently it means rolling up her sleeves and working on projects along with the team or delivering workshops to improve skills in areas like stakeholder alignment, digitization, or creating positive change. An engineer by training, Joanna led transformation initiatives for Johnson & Johnson, Diageo, AllianceBernstein, and Cushman & Wakefield. Working independently for the last six years, her consulting clients range from startups to Fortune 50 companies in a wide mix of industries. She wrote a book, A Guide to Positive Disruption, which provides a framework to follow for those who want to be successful managing though disruptive times. She was named a Distinguished Alumna by Rutgers College of Engineering and now sits on the School of Engineering’s Industry Advisory Board. She also advises two technology companies and a professional services organization. Joanna and her teams have been recognized for innovation or customer excellence by Determine, American Express, Egencia, and Heublein.
