Gramz will assume responsibility for the division’s information technology, human resources and concessions, in addition to maintaining his current operations, construction and projection technology roles.

Tomachek will assume oversight and responsibility for Marcus Theatres’ sales and marketing initiatives and film department, in addition to maintaining his current responsibilities, which include accounting, finance, planning and also the company’s food and beverage operations.

“Marcus Theatres is fortunate to have two members of our current executive committee with the experience and qualifications to assume these increased responsibilities,” said Bruce J. Olson, president of Marcus Theatres. “Mark’s long tenure and his thorough understanding of our people, policies and procedures make him ideally suited for his new role. Jeff’s extensive analysis of our markets and programs gives him a strong base of knowledge for his position. Jeff and Mark both have outstanding knowledge of the motion picture industry and a wonderful vision for the future of our company. We congratulate them on their promotions.”

Both Gramz and Tomachek will continue to report to Bruce Olson, who has been with The Marcus Corporation for 38 years. Olson and his executive team have built on Marcus Theatres’ 76 years of success. Today the company is the sixth largest U.S. exhibitor, operating 694 screens at 56 locations in seven states.

Gramz has over 40 years of experience with Marcus Theatres Corporation. He started with the company in 1971 as a part-time associate and rose through the ranks in positions including general manager and area supervisor, culminating in his promotion to senior vice president of operations in 2001. His ability to develop personnel has facilitated the operational growth of the company almost entirely through promotion of internal associates. His knowledge of the industry and trends helped guide the company’s conversion to digital projection in 2011. Gramz has bachelor’s degrees in both economics and business administration-finance from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Tomachek began his career with The Marcus Corporation in 1998 as controller for Marcus Theatres Corporation and in 2001 moved to the company’s former Baymont Inns & Suites division, where he served as vice president of accounting and finance. He returned to Marcus Theatres in 2004 as vice president of finance, planning and development. Tomachek’s many contributions include a significant role in the successful acquisitions of Cinema Entertainment Corporation in 2007 and Douglas Theatre Company in 2008. Tomachek was promoted to senior vice president of Marcus Theatres in 2009, where he was responsible for the company’s food and beverage businesses and strategic planning. He has a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and a Master of Business Administration degree from Marquette University.
