Member Spotlight: Toni Martin
Associate, Senior Marketing Coordinator
Perkins + Will

Hailing from the white sandy beaches of Pensacola, Florida, Toni Martin has been in the A/E/C industry for seven years. Formerly a graphic designer for an advertising agency and member of the Military Police in the U.S. Army, Toni joined SMPS five years ago. She has participated in several committees since joining and in 2016 was elected to the Board as Director at Large.

Toni enjoys connecting with other local coordinators and credits SMPS for helping her grow as a marketing professional. Outside of SMPS, Toni is an active member of the Triangle Chapter of the American Marketing Association.

Her advice to marketing/business development professionals new to the industry: “Make a point to go to the monthly Programs and Coordinator Clubs. Take notes, ask questions, and meet a like-minded individual, whether they have the same amount of experience or are more of a ‘mentor’ that you can go grab lunch with or just have regular correspondence with. I find those conversations to lead to brainstorming sessions and just good for the soul.”
