Martha German grew up in Michigan and moved to Arizona in 1974 after graduating from Michigan State University with a BS in Recreation. She worked as a tennis pro and in sports marketing before joining Apple in 1984. Entering Apple as an entry level junior sales representative she exited 23 years later as a VP. She worked primarily in Sales Leadership in every market Apple serviced-- Resellers, Distributors, Small Business and Professional markets, Publishing, Large Corporate Accounts, Value Added Resellers, and finally the last 11 years in the K-12 and University markets.
Education market responsibilities included managing Government Affairs resources in key states. When she retired in 2006 she wanted to apply the skills acquired and experiences she had with Apple to help animals. She’s since settled into her role as a volunteer lobbyist with Humane Voters of Arizona. She’s been married to another animal lover, Carl, for over 51 years and is “dogless" for the first time in over 45 years...but likely not for long!
