Mary Tomase

Group Media Director

The Details Matter. OOH Expert. Zen Master.

Mary launched her career in media in 2004 at Doner’s Detroit office working on US Cellular and La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries. She then relocated to Chicago to take a position at Omnicom’s PHD media shop working on the Cricket Wireless business and made a decision to leave PHD to join the GRP Media team in 2007.

During her time at GRP Media, Mary has helped develop and execute strategic media campaigns for American Girl, Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Checkers/Rally’s, Rush Health of Chicago, Neebo, and DeVry among others. In addition, GRP Media’s clients have benefitted from her especially deep relationships with the Chicago ad rep community, and she serves as GRP Media’s resident out-of-home planning and buying expert.

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