Mark Dosman
CEO, Strategic Site Selection

Mark Dosman is the CEO and founder of Strategic Site Selection, a $40M annual agency, that helps over 300 global corporations, associations and organizations find, negotiate, and contract venues for conferences and business events. Since the inception of Strategic Site Selection (SSS), the company has grown at an alarming rate. Canadian owned and operated, SSS now does more business volume than any other company in Canada by a long shot.

Growing up in a blue collar household, Mark was raised in a hard-working home, where the principles of determination and overcoming challenges were taught at a young age. Shortly after graduating with a film diploma, Mark entered the ‘arts’ work force while supplementing his income in hospitality and through a multi-level marketing company. This was where Mark initially learned to build his own business, self-teaching the skills of entrepreneurship and developing a thick skin.

In 2005 he started Strategic Site Selection, applying those same business principles spending nights researching, and days prospecting. Through this experience, Mark honed-in on the craft of selling with diligence and building step by step while navigating and adapting along the way. Sales, Leadership, Entrepreneurship…learned through experience! Podcasts and a book are in the works!

Most recently in the wake of Covid-19, Mark is leading his team through crisis, overcoming adversity within the business events industry as a whole. Relying on his team, Mark has mobilized his staff, is adapting to the new landscape obtaining and nurturing new business that will supplement lost revenue. As the pandemic continues to evolve so does Mark’s willingness to grow and transform.

"Never one to shy away from the hustle, or a tough conversation, Mark is an established and sought after leader who rolls up his sleeves and gets into the trenches with his team and clients. Attributing to his success is a dedication to prospecting, maintaining a palpable energy, and understanding the ever changing landscape on a deep level."
