Coldwell Banker Real Estate CMO David Marine Recognized as a 2022 HousingWire Marketing Leader


The award recognizes leaders strengthening their brands and building their organizations’ reputations each and every day.


MADISON, N.J. (July 1, 2022) – Coldwell Banker Chief Marketing Officer David Marine has been named a 2022 HousingWire Marketing Leader, a recognition awarded to some of the real estate industry’s most creative and influential CMOs with track records of transforming brands, leading teams and driving business results. David has proven to be a strategic and innovative marketing leader who demonstrates leadership by continuously growing, leading and motivating his team and enhancing the Coldwell Banker brand.

As the chief marketing officer for Coldwell Banker with over 20 years of digital, content and social marketing experience, David does more than just market the oldest and most trusted real estate brand in the industry. In addition to his affinity for storytelling and leading a team of more than 150 diverse, thought-provoking marketers to reshape a brand that has existed for 116 years, David finalized the first rebrand for Coldwell Banker in nearly half a century: a “trifecta” that included Coldwell Banker Realty and affiliated companies, Coldwell Banker Global Luxury and Coldwell Banker Commercial, reshaping the mission, values, messaging and design to set the brand on a growth trajectory for the future.

This year, David launched the 2022 Dream Campaign to address America’s low housing inventory challenge and target home sellers rather than homebuyers. Part of this Dream campaign included the Dream ad, the highest-rated ad in the real estate category according to ACE Metrix – 10 years running! The campaign also incorporated a website refresh that includes unique tools to engage consumers: the Move MeterSM, the CB EstimateSM home price evaluation tool and a new Seller’s Assurance Program.

David’s leadership never faltered even with multiple projects under his belt, and his positivity, enthusiasm and creativity inspire the industry as he continues to take obstacles head-on through the execution of successful advertising and marketing initiatives. Never settling, he understands that the key to success in any company is continuing to create innovation that excites.
