Hello!I’m Martine Russell
Marketing & Communications Professional
Communication is the sending and receiving of messages and underscores an important facet of what makes us uniquely human, our use of language.
I went to high school in Newport News, Virginia, a town named after the famed Captain Newport – who as you might have guessed – brought the news into Virginia before mass media. Continuing on this bit of hometown inspiration, I went to Boston College where I received a Baccalaureate of Arts in Communication. It was at BC that I was introduced to marketing or the study and management of exchange relationships. Ultimately, it is about getting the right product, to the right place, at the right time.

In 2019, that includes channels like video, social media and mobile technology. What is fascinating about MarComm (Marketing Communications) is how no matter what position you are in, MarComm principles are things that everyone in your organization (or sole proprietorship) should be knowledgeable on. From sweepstakes, brand ambassadors, and sales to general business development, the touch points are vast.
My site exists as an extension of my past work and experience in the field of Marketing Communications including past work in government, banking, dental, nonprofit, and small business. I am @MartineMaingot on Twitter.
