Marianne Martino


A native to the hospitality industry, Marianne literally grew up in the hotel/resort business, servicing clients from behind the front desk at an early age in her family-owned hotel in fabled Atlantic City. Marianne kicked off her gaming career in Atlantic City in the late 70’s, and as the industry grew so did her career. She held positions such as Food & Beverage Controller, Personnel Manager, Human Resources Manager, as well as a variety of Marketing positions. As Vice President of Marketing at Trump Plaza in the early 1990’s, Marianne was in charge during the “Golden Years” of Atlantic City and Trump. Her prowess at strategic planning and positioning of the company in an intensely competitive market played a large part in Trump Plaza consistently being the one of the top revenue generating properties in Atlantic City for several years. While at Trump Plaza, Marianne helped design and implement the casino industry’s first direct mail campaign, forever changing the way we market. For the past 20 years Marianne has burnished her reputation as a renowned industry executive and “casino marketing force to be reckoned with” by managing two advertising agencies that have specialized in the hospitality and gaming industry. Both agencies have flourished under Marianne’s direction, as she has assisted in the acquisition, management, branding, advertising, direct marketing and loyalty programs for more than 50 casino resorts all over the country!
