Founder

Kelly MacGaunn is the founder and CEO of kelleemack pr, as well as its newly launched sister company, kelleemack media. Her hands-on approach to public relations has established her firm, kelleemack pr, as a sought-after PR entity.

She has spent the past two decades delivering all-encompassing public relations, social media, and digital marketing strategies for everything from music to nonprofits, lifestyle brands, entertainment entities, and new product launch events.

MacGaunn dives into each campaign with over two decades of experience, long-term relationships with the media, and innovative communication plans tailored to the respective client's needs and goals. This has allowed her to continuously generate placements in top television, print, online, and radio outlets, including both national late-night as well as morning television, in addition to national entertainment magazines, industry-specific trade publications, and syndicated print, radio and even college media, for her clients. The execution always leads to the elevation of the brand and a dramatic increase in awareness.

In addition to helming her firm, MacGaunn has served as a senior publicist at Bobbi Marcus PR & Events Inc. for 19 years, securing national media coverage and spearheading press conferences, overseeing red carpets, media rooms, grand openings, product launches, gifting suites, and more. She also recently teamed up with Fran DeFeo on several projects and worked with Tom Muzquiz at Subterranean Media and MAD Ink PR for six years.

Her PR career began while a student at California State University Northridge, interning at Marketing Factory Inc./Ink, spearheading her fanzine/blog and reviewing and interviewing artists in and around Los Angeles on her days off. Upon graduation, she was hired part-time at MFI Ink and launched her PR career in the entertainment industry as a media relations coordinator.

MacGaunn has been honored to speak about public relations at Cal State University, Fullerton, and her alum, Cal State University, Northridge, where she was also asked to serve on the PR Advisory Council Department of Journalism and assess the 2017-18 public relations curriculum. She currently serves as a PR Mentor for CSUN's PRSSA Mentorship Program.
