About Martin

Martin DeFrance, a Director at V9, is on a mission to help clients get results with marketing that’s driven by innovation and data — and enthusiasm. Martin joined the Volume Nine team after nearly 5 years of working with his own startup, where he led marketing and growth efforts. 

Working in the cannabis technology startup space, Martin is especially equipped to help our Colorado cannabis and startup clients with marketing strategies designed to expand reach and impact. He also has experience in D2C brands & SaaS, helping us create strategies for our clients’ specific industries.

By joining our team, Martin will help us create marketing plans that showcase our clients’ innovative offers, as well as stay ahead of the competition. He’s most excited about working with our clients and partnering with our existing team. He even called us a “great group of people,” so we’ll take that as a compliment.

Outside of his work here at V9, Martin is probably doing Colorado things, like  rock climbing, backpacking, skiing, and jumping in freezing cold alpine lakes. You might also find him playing guitar and trumpet or taking his dog, Lucy, on long walks.
