Doreen DiPolito is the owner of D-Mar Contracting and Development, showing that woman can contribute to the construction industry, and grabs the attention of JoTo PR.

Karla Jo Helms, CEO of Tampa Bay-based public relations firm JoTo PR, signs on D-Mar Contracting as new client.

Businesses should be judged on capability, not gender, when going through hiring candidates. D-Mar has done a lot in the community to validate this point.

D-Mar Contracting and Development of Clearwater, Florida, is a certified Women’s Business Enterprise in a workforce that competes in a heavily male-dominated industry. JoTo PR extended their clientele recently by signing with this once small construction business, ensuring that D-Mar Contracting keeps getting the recognition it deserves.

Owned and operated by Doreen DiPolito, D-Mar Contracting was once a family-run business that has now evolved into a full-service construction and remodeling firm which most recently reinvented the way Hess and the rest of Marathon Speedways will be rebranded. D-Mar has also worked with national franchises such as Circle K and Dunkin’ Donuts, which has proven that DiPolito has the ability to take the firm to another level with efficient and cost-effective construction services, from rebranding and permitting to site construction. In 2006, D-Mar was honored by the Clearwater Chamber of Commerce with the Clearwater Business of the Year award after DiPolito has successfully grown the company by 20% each year since 2001.

Karla Jo Helms, CEO of JoTo PR, signed D-Mar Contracting and Development for their past work efforts, as well as DiPolito’s encouragement and work within the community.

“Businesses should be judged on capability, not gender, when going through hiring candidates. D-Mar has done a lot in the community to validate this point,” says Helms.

Certified by the WBENC, Women and Minority Business Enterprise (WMBE) and the Office of Supplier Diversity (OSD), D-Mar Contracting and Development is DiPolito’s main avenue to helping women in construction realize their potential.
