You have a strong profile, great work experience, solid GMAT score and can clearly articulate your career goals. You have chosen some competitive programs however you are a strong applicant. Don't spend too much time focusing on the GMAT. Your score is solidly within the 80% range for the programs on your list. When you apply, be sure to highlight any quantitative aspects of your job or any experience that shows yours comfort with numbers. That said, your GMAT score should not be a source of worry.
Instead, start focusing on the other aspects of your application. I am sure that you have heard that the GMAT is only one component of the application and this is true. While a very low GMAT may knock you out of the running, a great GMAT will not guarantee acceptance. Therefore, you should plan to spend significant time on your essays, interview prep, school visits (where possible) and identification of individuals who can write strong LORs.
Also, make sure you know the ins and outs of each programs' marketing concentrations and also are familiar with their recruiting relationships. Finally, avoid a generic approach to the application process and be sure to highlight specific areas that interest you about each program.
