“GreenMark Media brought a new depth and public engagement to Lurie Garden through their thoughtful, stepwise approach of building on the Garden's key public-facing features. The GreenMark team involved the entire Garden staff in identifying important messaging points, trained staff in preparation for appearances on local and national media, and served as an advocate for the Garden's interests within the local and national media sectors. This work resulted in strong reputation and recognition building for the Garden among the public, those specifically interested in gardening-related topics, and local media personalities. GreenMark's efforts positioned the Garden as one of the top sustainable urban green spaces in the United States and among the leading public gardens of the world." - Scott Stewart, former Executive Director, Millennium Park Foundation

“The Naperville Park District has enjoyed an excellent working relationship with GreenMark Public Relations on its Nike Sports Complex Expansion Project. With an already stretched communications staff at the Park District, GreenMark was brought on to develop and execute a comprehensive community engagement and communications plan. Their professionalism in working on the project from conception to implementation was appreciated, and its responsiveness to project team members and stakeholders went above and beyond expectations. It was evident from the very beginning of the project that GreenMark was knowledgeable about public engagement processes and we had total confidence in its ability to work behind the scenes on the Nike initiative while the District’s communications staff attended to other projects. GreenMark became a great extension of our Marketing and Communications Department and delivered an end product that not only was in line with our expectations, but our stakeholders’ expectations as well.” - Sameera Luthman, Naperville Park District
