PSR Digital Handshake: Meet Dominique Martin
Getting to Know Dom in Ten Questions:
1. Tell us about your past experience (where did you go to school, previous jobs, volunteer work, etc)
While completing my undergraduate degree, I had the opportunity to work within the marketing department at Ivanhoe Cambridge. In my time with Ivanhoe Cambridge, I learnt much about the real estate industry & the role in which marketing played in supporting their assets to further drive business and traffic. It was only through my time in this specific role, in which my passion for the world of real estate was created!
In graduating from McMaster University in 2017 with a Honors Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Religious Studies, I then jumped right into the PR world working with major beauty brands such as Kerastase Paris & Garnier. Shortly, after I made the switch to Cadillac Fairview overseeing the marketing department at CF Shops at Don Mills and CF Lime Ridge managing relationships with major clients such as The Ten Spot, Shoppers Drug Mart, Anthropologie and Aritzia.
2. What is your favourite thing about your industry/job?
By far, having the unique opportunity to meet new people and create/strengthen client relationships to better support their business’ needs has become my favourite part of what I do and the industry.
3.Who stands out to you / do you most admire in the business world right now?
As of right now, entrepreneur Jen Atkin has caught my eye as she continues to dedicate much of her career to supporting women and their careers. Jen’s story of success which began with humble beginnings has brought much inspiration to myself; motivating me to keep hustling!
4. What is the career philosophy / mantra / inspirational quote that gets you through tougher days?
I have two I couldn’t pick between:
“Behind every success is effort. Behind every effort is passion, Behind every passion is someone with the courage to try.” – Anonymous

On a King West patio, of course.
9. When you’re not working, what can we find you doing?
Traveling somewhere – anywhere! (when travel resumes, that is)
10. Highlight so far this year and what you’re looking forward to this next year:
Without a doubt, joining the PSR team has been the highlight of my year. I’m excited and look forward to working with PSR agents in support of their clients. With much to look forward to on the horizon, I can’t wait to embark on my journey at PSR – continuing to learn and grow in the industry that I call home.
