Todd Anderton has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Marketing, Laura Hale to Vice President of Portfolio Marketing and Stephany Ruiz to Vice President of Experience.

“In an era marked by e-commerce and remote work, marketing and experiential activations matter now more than ever to the success of mixed-use real estate,” said Terry Montesi, Founder and CEO of Trademark. “As part of the reorganization, we are focusing more heavily on modern metrics that matter to our tenants – social media followings, event attendance, brand awareness and dwell time, among others. By integrating our marketing and experience disciplines, we will amplify the role each plays across properties and at a corporate level.”
Experiential programming and activations are at the core of Trademark’s property-level marketing strategies. As Senior Vice President of Marketing, Anderton will work alongside Ruiz and the entire marketing team to execute marketing and guest services at the highest level, with an increased efficiency and focus on results. As Vice President of Experience, Ruiz will provide guidance and leadership in the experience sector of marketing, as well as guest services. In her new position as Vice President of Portfolio Marketing, Hale will provide guidance, training, mentorship and oversight to all field marketing personnel and share best practices across the nationwide portfolio.
“Whether it’s accumulating social media followings in the tens of thousands or planning the best holiday programming in the region, our marketing teams are executing exceptional programs that attract people to our properties and keep them there for hours on end,” said Anderton. “In mixed-use real estate, an impactful marketing program is critical to the success of the property, and these investments in our department further our ability to innovate and stay ahead of the curve.”
At Trademark, each property marketing plan is built from the ground up. The company uses leading-edge analytics to identify user segments, test creatives and hone approaches that produce customized marketing strategies unique to each property. Trademark’s guest services initiatives also take traditional customer service and residential amenities to a higher level by offering unparalleled and convenient services, enhancements and amenities.
