128. Martin Progressive. "Extremely pleased"
Martin Progressive L.L.C. is a provider of information technology consulting services, including systems engineering, relocation services, and services to the hedge fund industry. (1)

The main office is located in London. They used to have 80 - CNN said 200 - employees on WTC1 on 9/11. Martin Progressive has been named as one of the 9/11 inside traders by the SEC (2) and had their operations up and running two days later.

Extremely pleased
One of the happier stories to come out of the horror has been that of Martin Progressive, an IT strategy and consulting firm that had more than 200 employees based in offices on the 77th floor of the World Trade Center's north tower.

"We are extremely pleased," reads a home-page message from the company's operating committee, "to announce that as of today, fully 100 percent of our staff has been accounted for. This is the best news we could have hoped for, given the tragic circumstances."

Initially, Martin Progressive used its home-page space to let people know that its operations were being temporarily run from its Chicago offices. Then, on Friday, the news was posted that temporary space has been located now in New York on 11th Street.
