Maureen ‘Mo’ McFadden is owner of McFadden & McFadden P.R. based in Santa Barbara since 1992. The boutique PR firm handles arts, entertainment, environmental and non-profit clients. She has worked on both sides of the P.R. fence – as a writer and press agent – giving her a highly qualified approach in presenting stories to the media.
McFadden has excellent media contacts and community in-roads, capped by a solid rep for delivering results. Her film festival experience, from the world stage at Cannes, to Ojai and Santa Barbara Int'l FF gave her a clear perspective on how similar responsibilities are for any client, be it small, medium or large. Working in the entertainment PR trade allows her an adaptable approach, which translates easily to any kind of account. Plus, Mo’s fun and she gets results.
