Principal, marlo marketing/communications
An attorney licensed in New York and Massachusetts, Marlo brings a unique skill set and background to the world of communications and marketing. Thanks to her thorough, cohesive approach and her laser-sharp focus on the big picture, Marlo has become recognized as one of the country’s leading consumer publicists in a relatively short time.
In 2004, Marlo created marlo marketing/communications, a full-service agency focused on best-of-class consumer lifestyle products and services. Highly regarded by her clients for her personal approach; honest, ethical business style; and accessibility, Marlo prides herself on becoming a part of her client’s “team.” Though she runs one of the industry’s most successful privately-held agencies, Marlo practices a hands-on approach and remains a firm believer in a rock-sold marketing strategy – an approach that’s become the basis of the agency’s philosophy. Whether hired for her PR prowess or her overall marketing vision, Marlo continues to lead her clients to success in whatever venture they undertake.
When she’s not leading her rapidly-growing company, Marlo supports many non-profits and donates much of her time to pro bono PR work. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Boston Police Athletic League, the Boston Public Market Association, the BiNA Farm, and on the Board of Overseers of the New Center for Arts & Culture. In addition, Marlo served as Chairperson of the Outdoor Advertising Board for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts from 2006-2009, at the appointment of Governor Romney.
Marlo was named one of four finalists in the 2005 PR News PR People Awards in the category of PR Professional of the Year, and was recognized as one of Boston’s “40 Under 40” by the Boston Business Journal in 2006. She is a member of the 2007 class of the Emerging Leaders Program at the UMass – Boston, was named one of Boston’s 25 Most Envied People by Boston magazine in 2008 and as one of the seven most innovative Bostonians by BizBash magazine in 2011. In 2011, the agency won Silver in the Bulldog Stars of PR Awards in the category of Small Agency of the Year – Between $1M & $3M. The agency’s blog, m.blog, has won numerous awards, including the Bulldog Digital/Social PR Awards for Excellence in Online Communications in 2011 and the BostInno Insider Awards for Best Blog, Marketing/Advertising. She is a graduate of Boston University School of Law and holds a Master’s Degree in International Relations from Boston University’s College of Arts & Sciences.
