Meet The Team
Shane Martin is the Co-Founder and CEO of SLB Ventures. Shane grew up in NH working in residential construction, learning from a very young age the value of hard work and dedication to the desired outcome. He had the good fortune to apply those values to a myriad of jobs that took him to every corner of the United States and many different countries, where he had the great pleasure of experiencing and working directly with so many different cultures. He took from his experiences the best and the worst of everything that he observed, and he actively tries to apply what he has learned to his own life, every day, in order to achieve his highest purpose.
Shane has found that purpose in raising his family and building his businesses. He takes a progressive approach to each, with his loving wife and Co-Founder Lori Carroll. Shane is a fanatic advocate of doing things differently than what is considered to be normal. Shane’s business and behavior are based on a “solutions first” attitude. It is his belief that there is great reward hidden in solving problems whether they belong to an individual, a community, an employee or an investor. His mission is to inspire the same principle in his organization and hopefully those that are touched by the organization’s operations.
Shane currently resides in Bend, Oregon with his wife and son.
