Martin McLeod

A Director of The Orion Network, Martin brings more than 30 years mobile communications experience to his role. Developing a passion for radio communications in the early 70s at the Westlakes Amateur Radio Club in NSW, it is no coincidence that today Martin is playing a founding role in the development of Australia’s largest digital two-way radio network.

As Managing Director of Gencom, one of the most respected communications players in New South Wales, Martin is best known for his inherent desire to understand how he can add value to his client’s operations through the application of new communication technologies. He stands by the firm belief that you can drive any outcome you want if you’re passionate enough to do it. 

In the mid-late 80s, Martin was an Account Executive at Motorola, which he claims was an excellent training ground in all facets of business. He has held the role of Vice President with the Australian Radio Communications Industry Association (ARCIA) since 2009, and is driven by a genuine desire to contribute to the future development of Australia’s communications industry.

Partial to a round of golf, Martin is excited about his shared vision to build a world-class digital radio network that spans the country.
