Meet the Director

In 2012, Marty V. Cayton was named Director of the Center for Entrepreneurship and Assistant Professor of Business Administration. Cayton, a 1990 MU alumnus, earned his MBA from Taylor University and is currently owner and president of Amerizon Wireless.

Being instrumental in developing Methodist University's entrepreneurship major and minor, Cayton looks forward to forging the path to a #1 national ranking in entrepreneurship among private, liberal arts universities by 2020.

Cayton has been very active with the Center for Entrepreneurship for the last six years, serving as an advisory board member. In 2009, the CFE named him Economics and Business Alumnus of the Year, and in 2012, his company won the CFE's American Business Ethics Award. He currently works within the Reeves School of Business and with members of the community to help students build success through both academic study and "real world" experience.

Cayton's business experience includes 25 years in the wireless and land mobile radio business in such positions as President, VP / General Manager, VP, Director of Sales, and Financial Controller. An accomplished spokesman and presenter for the wireless industry, he has expertise in deal making, strategic sales and business relationships, financial planning, acquiring capital, and mergers and acquisitions. Future interests include assisting business owners in strengthening existing operations, new start-ups, and strategic partnerships and doing all to Glorify God in the process.

He and his wife Joy have four children and a new daughter-in-law. Marty and his family are active in their church, and he enjoys singing with his wife, traveling and spending time with his family.

Cayton's strategy for business is as follows:

  • To focus on strengths, not weaknesses.
  • To persevere and remain optimistic at all times.
  • To honor God in all endeavors.
  • To honor others by responding promptly to their requests by returning calls, emails, etc.
  • To employ and partner with the best.
  • To stay on the cutting edge of your industry, realizing that the only constant is change.
