When Sonia Greteman opened her advertising agency in 1989, computer design was new and women-owned agencies, rare. As president and creative director, she’s built Greteman Group into an internationally known aviation-specialty marketing firm. That niche grew out of growing up in the Air Capital – and being the daughter of Boeing Wichita’s chief photographer, Ken Greteman. She learned how to use a camera and print photos working in her dad’s freelance business.

Greteman always knew she would be in a creative industry and enjoys working alongside the agency’s 20-person team of designers, writers, brand managers and digital pros. GG’s diverse list of clients includes aircraft manufacturers, flight support, aftermarket services, fractional ownership, insurance, in-flight Wi-Fi, regional airlines and our state’s largest airport.

Greteman and her husband, sculptor Chris Brunner, enjoy high-level involvement in the Wichita art scene, particularly the Wichita Art Museum, WSU’s Ulrich Museum and the new Mark Arts. She serves on multidisciplinary teams like the one behind Eisenhower National Airport’s monumental aviation-history display, which she championed for almost a decade. She loves nothing more than working on the next big project and lives to create and move the needle for clients.

Greteman Group’s mantra: “Together, we help brands fly high.” It’s her approach to life, too. Lifting up others. Elevating her community. All benefit from her passion and commitment.
