'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
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.
