Uproar is excited to announce the recent hiring of Marci Grossman as an account director and general manager of its Chicago office. Originally from Chicago’s northern suburbs, Marci graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor of arts in journalism — emphasis in broadcast news.
Marci began her career as a television news reporter, producer and assignment editor before transitioning to public relations. She has extensive experience in the PR field, having worked in senior communication and leadership roles for Sears, Ameritech (AT&T), Dell Computer and Green Mountain Energy Company, before launching her own consulting firm. After successfully running her own agency for eight years, she went back to the corporate sector and worked in senior roles at Florida Power & Light and Peoples Gas. Prior to joining Uproar, Marci did consulting work for various clients, including boutique PR agencies.
In her free time, Marci loves to see live music, whether it’s local bands or major artists. Last year, she saw the Rolling Stones, Elton John and Sting. This summer, she plans to see Lady Gaga, Train and Foreigner. Marci also enjoys attending plays, musicals, comedy shows, movies and cooking.
When she is not seeing a performance, Marci looks forward to spending time with her 25-year-old twins. Her fun fact is that she interviewed Gloria Steinem when she was a television reporter in the 80s.
Welcome, Marci! We’re excited for you to take on a new leadership role within our Chicago office. Uproar is always looking for passionate professionals to join our team. Click here to learn more about our open positions!
