Zack Martin graduated from Brigham Young University – Idaho in 2012 and then received his Master’s in Accounting from the University of Southern California in 2013. He then spent the first seven years of his financial career rising to the ranks of senior manager at Ernst & Young and then to The Cadence Group as the Bay Area Director of Finance & Accounting.
In 2020, Zack left EY to become the CFO for Loop, a Los Angeles-based startup looking to disrupt the status quo in the electric vehicle charging station industry. Since joining the company, he has helped grow Loop from a seed stage startup to a multi-million dollar growing international company. Most recently, he has lead Loop through its first major institutional funding round to help support the company’s rapid expansion.
Zack took a leap of faith in leaving one of the world’s most reputable accounting companies in EY, where he was on track to one day make partner, in order to join a one-year-old (at the time) startup in Loop. His passion for sustainability and belief in the company’s mission, products and services were his main motivating factors and since joining the team has been an integral part of growing the company from just a budding regional industry player to one of the fastest growing international electric vehicle charging networks. He has brought to Loop, as its CFO, a sense of focused drive, conviction and financial stability that has enabled this early-stage startup to achieve high growth in just its first few years of operation.
