Robert Martin Jr., Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Dr. Robert Martin earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees as a microbiologist, culminating with his Ph.D. in Mycology at Ohio University specializing in endoparasites.  Robert was recruited from university teaching by Kraft Foods in the early eighties where he excelled in Physical Chemistry, New Product Development, and Quality Assurance.  After four US Patents and many new products, Dr. Martin moved to Dreyers/Edy Grand Ice Cream where he continued to generate new products and two more US Patents until his early retirement in 2002.  Following several years of successful consulting with Con Agra, Nestle, Mrs. Fields, and Coca-Cola, many of Robert’s close friends began to come down with ailments and diseases where medical Cannabis was an alternative.  In response, Robert and his early partner John created CW Analytical in 2009 to help ensure the safety of this alternative medicine and to assist in the standardization of QA measures for the evolving medical Cannabis industry.  In 2011, along with several colleagues, Robert founded the Association of California Cannabis Laboratories, which has expanded to become the Association of Commercial Cannabis Laboratories. The mission of the ACCL is to foster cooperation and collaboration between Cannabis labs across North America, as well as to establish inter-laboratory standards and proficiencies. Today, Dr. Martin serves as the CEO of CW Analytical and as the Executive Director of the ACCL.

Emily Richardson, Vice President, Business Development

Emily holds a B.A. in Communication from the University of California, Santa Barbara. There she conducted, and later published research, on how organizations cultivate attachment and loyalty from their members. Emily joined CW Analytical as the first employee in 2010. Over the last 8 years, she has played an integral role in the growth and success of the business, and now oversees all aspects of client relations, sales, and business development. She is passionate about supporting CW Analytical's clients as they navigate the world of quality assurance and state regulations to create Cannabis products that are safe, consistent, and compliant. She is actively involved in the California Cannabis Industry Association, and is frequently invited to speak on the topic of Cannabis testing and regulations in California. 

David Egerton, Vice President, Technical Operations

David Egerton earned his B.S. and M.S. in Chemistry from the University of Louisville with a focus on Physical and Analytical Chemistry. His undergraduate and graduate work focused on portable sensors and bio-remediation of pesticides. His introduction to the Cannabis industry came about while working on tissue culture for a bay area clone producer, after which he signed on to work at CW Analytical in 2011. Since that time, he has served as a scientist, laboratory manager and presently as the Vice President of Technical Services. Mr. Egerton has spent considerable time helping clients fine-tune their methods of extraction and infusion, all while developing and refining laboratory SOP's, validating methodologies, and developing strategic partnerships with equipment manufacturers to continually upgrade and expand CW's capabilities and service offerings. David also serves as Quality Manager for CW Analytical and has successfully led the lab through ISO 17025 accreditation.
