'Mary Fifield is a former producer…and before that a most highly regarded director of information for ABC News…'

—The Washington Post

 

Ms. Fifield, a former journalist, has an extensive background in public policy, politics, government, and public relations.

She has produced headline programming for the major American television networks, including NBC, CBS, ABC, and CNN. She was a producer at 20/20 and World News Tonight for ABC News; she was Charlie Rose’s political producer at Nightwatch with Charlie Rose for CBS News; and she produced news pieces for NBC Nightly News. She was also the producer of CBS’s awardwinning public affairs program, Face the Nation.

Following network assignments in Washington, D.C., Manhattan, and Houston, Ms. Fifield spent three years in Rome, where she was a producer for CNN’s Headline News. She has extensive working relationships with broadcast and print journalists and commentators nationally.

Ms. Fifield began her career in the public sector. She was press secretary to Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis before returning to politics as an assistant press secretary in charge of the press corps for presidential candidate Jimmy Carter.

Following several years of public and political service, Ms. Fifield was hired by Roone Arledge as Director of Public Relations for the re-vamped ABC News, where she devised and oversaw the public introduction of such then-new programs as World News Tonight, 20/20, Nightline, and This Week With David Brinkley. She then moved into producing.

Ms. Fifield was Director of Government and External Affairs for Boston’s Artery Business Committee—an organization of Boston’s top 100 CEOs who supported the construction of the $15.6 billion “Big Dig,” the largest public works project in the U.S. She then became vice president of strategic affairs at ML Strategies, the consulting arm of Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C., where she developed and managed communications strategies for that firm’s clients.

She formed Mary Fifield Associates (MFA), a 20-person communications-consulting firm, in 1995. The firm has represented significant corporate, government, and non-profit clients in Boston and Washington for 17 years.

Ms. Fifield is the recent past president of The Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus, the recent past chair of the Massachusetts Government Appointments Project (MassGAP), the current vice-chair of Health Resources In Action, and a former director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Massachusetts.
