Carol Ann, president and media director, founded The Media Place in 1982 with the purpose of working directly with clients for their media buys, passing on savings. Her 48+ years of media buying in the Pacific NW has created life long relationships with all media companies and personnel who share a deep loyalty and respect for each other.

The 2024 Seattle Boat Show will be her 27th show, dating way back to the Kingdome era in 1997. Her long standing relationships with all media companies in the Pacific NW ensures that the Seattle Boat Show receives the best media buy for the budget, as well as additional value-added promotions and bonus spots whenever possible.

Carol Ann lives on Camano Island with her dog Tito. In her spare time she enjoys golfing and the lifestyle of living on an island. She volunteers with the Cama Beach Foundation as store manager, store buyer and serves on their Board as secretary. She also loves to travel and has been on every continent.  Her bags are always packed and ready to go for the next adventure.
