Founded 29 years ago, Marino has deep roots in the real estate and development space, and has long been a trusted partner to some of the most iconic brands in the world. Earlier this year, Marino rebranded its real estate practice to Real Estate & Property Innovation. Marino’s PropTech work spans flex workspace, co-living, FinTech, short term rentals, single family e-commerce, venture capital firms, energy and sustainability, digital connectivity, commercial real estate SaaS and more. Marino also ramped up its creative and advertising department, managing multiple successful performance marketing campaigns across verticals. Additionally, the team produced and launched a podcast, “The Housing Problem,” hosted by Kirk Goodrich and Rafael Cestero, that covers affordable housing issues in New York City. The agency has expanded its roster outside of its original core categories, with new client wins across cannabis, food and beverage and non-profit.

How is the agency advancing DEI in the industry?
“Composed of a cross-section of team members at all levels, Marino’s Dedicated to Diversity Committee works in tandem with executive leadership and external partners to create vehicles for communication, education, empowerment and action, while taking a deeper look at how Marino incorporates DEI into the agency’s culture, hiring and philanthropic efforts. The committee has spearheaded initiatives that create avenues of discussion, learning and powerful conversation. By frequently sharing resources both company-wide and to external agency partners that educate, support minority-owned businesses and clientele, honor cultural and religious milestones and foster thought-provoking discussions, Marino’s Dedicated to Diversity Committee further cultivates an existing company culture that values diversity, equity and inclusion as a core ethos. Marino remains committed to representing and promoting a diverse roster of clients, including our work with Etain, the first and only women-founded-and-operated medical cannabis dispensary in New York; New Settlement, whose mission is to break systemic barriers, advance racial justice and strengthen neighborhoods in the Bronx; and elevating the voices of LGBTQ+ leaders through our work with brands such as the Pantheon Collective.”
