Shay Hughes


Shay Hughes, COO of Hughes Marino, has a style of consulting business that has become a model for successful business women and the business community. Shay is the first to admit she has taken an unusual path to her executive role as chief operating officer at Hughes Marino, San Diego’s largest commercial real estate firm exclusively representing tenants. She was first recruited by her husband, Jason Hughes, president of Hughes Marino, many years ago to produce the firm’s high-profile television commercials and head up the company’s major marketing campaigns.

The culture Shay has created is truly one of family, where spouses and children are all part of the equation that makes this such an amazing place to work. From the firm’s quarterly retreats where employees and spouses spend the day with best-selling authors and speakers, to the family style living room, kitchen and game room that the team enjoys on a daily basis in their headquarters, Shay’s impact on the culture of the company has reorganized and recharged the firm in a way that team members say could have only have been accomplished by a woman. She adds, “My life has always been about family, and that family includes our entire company. A little maternal instinct goes a long way in the workplace.”

And Shay’s impact on the firm is apparent. Today, Hughes Marino is the largest tenant representation company in San Diego.
