With over 20 years of experience in healthcare, technology, and estate planning, CEO Rich Martin knows firsthand the importance of accessible healthcare directives and estate documents. He is the former VP of Directive Communication Systems (DCS) which provides a digital asset inventory tool for estate planning professionals.

An avid mountaineer and explorer, Rich has climbed 2 of the 7 summits and participated in a North Pole Expedition. His hobby has required him to help prepare for emergencies on the mountain and off by putting advance directives and estate documents in a readily accessible and secure online depository.

Closer to home, Rich has seen how confusing estate situations get while caring for terminally ill loved ones whose estate documents are in disorder. These experiences have inspired Rich to create Directives Online, to which he brings the same passion and dedicated preparedness that has characterized his mountaineering adventures all over the globe.
