Mary Price: Brand Media/Group Head
First impressions are sometimes wrong. Mary’s the perfect example. When clients first meet her, they’re introduced to a petite and poised woman – and so expect an equally petite and poised demeanor. What they soon discover is that Mary’s a shrewd negotiator, one who loves to aggressively keep track of where the money goes.
After graduating from the University of Texas, Mary joined Tracy-Locke to work with Phillips 66, Embassy Suites, Frito-Lay, and Pepsi. She came to The Richards Group in 1993, planning media for Motel 6, Children’s Medical Center Dallas, Chick-fil-A, Nokia, and Travelocity.com.
Mary believes that creativity and innovation are not just the purview of art directors and copywriters. She now leads the agency’s media team (planning and negotiating) and, under her leadership, our clients’ media plans have been recognized with several significant awards celebrating innovation in media.
