Christen Martorana, Member and CEO of Beely Consulting, LLC, a firm specializing in operational consulting and strategic planning, is a certified Contract Facilitator for The Alternative Board Southern New Jersey (TABSNJ). She brings 20+ years of business experience, her legal background, and leadership to TABSNJ. She loves helping business leaders solve problems, overcome obstacles, and achieve success.
Christen started her professional career as a trial attorney representing clients in criminal cases for the Legal Aid Society of New York City. She left the practice of law to help her family's business, an engineering firm that specialized in healthcare technology, so that her parents could eventually monetize their hard work and retire. In her 13 years with the company, during 3 of which she served as CEO, she was instrumental in systematizing and growing the business. Notable accomplishments under her leadership include the development of processes that allowed the business to scale, establishment of compliance and quality controls, relocation of the business headquarters and warehouses, 15x annual revenue growth over 10 years, and planning and effecting the family business succession plan to the next generation.
At the end of her tenure, she led the business, and her family, through a successful sale to a private equity firm that generated significant returns for the shareholders. After the sale, she stayed on with the acquiring company and served a lead role in the post-acquisition integration.
Desiring to share the knowledge that she’s gained, and to help others grow their businesses and realize their goals, Christen now serves as a business advisor and Contract Facilitator for TABSNJ.
