Risk-taking that pays off

Marin never hesitates to take risks to make the company evolve. For the past two years, he’s been taking the U.S. market by storm, not blinking an eye to move to New York to gain the trust of the new clients he was approaching. Today, close to 91% of District m’s earnings come from the United States.

Marin was also able to develop decisive partnerships in the creation of new business solutions. In the coming year, after opening offices in New York and Los Angeles, he also plans on opening up new offices in Europe.
