Mary Tomase

Group Media Director

The Details Matter. OOH Expert. Zen.

Mary has been in media planning for 10+ years. After attending high school and college in Michigan, she spent two years working for Daimler Chrysler before launching her media career at Donor’s Detroit office working on US Cellular and La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries. When her boss was relocating to Chicago and offered Mary a spot on her team at PHD, she jumped at the chance to return to her hometown.

After a brief stint at PHD, working on Cricket Wireless, Mary landed at GRP Media in 2007. At GRP Media, Mary has helped develop media campaigns for American Girl, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Checkers/Rally’s, Neebo, Traditional Medicinals, DeVry/Keller, Cadence Health, New Chapter, Invisible Fence, Certus Bank, and Abercrombie and Kent. In addition, she’s been able to hone her negotiating chops to become the resident OOH expert.

When she isn’t poring over the details of her media plans, Mary can be seen checking out up-and-coming bands at the many small concert venues throughout the city or at a yoga class getting her zen on.
