Barbara Hicks, Director of Marketing and Media: Promoted to Senior Associate
As Director of Marketing and Media at MPA, Barbara Hicks directs all the marketing, graphic design, and social media initiatives of the award winning architecture firm. Barbara’s impressive body of work has won five awards for MPA from the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) Boston Recognizing Outstanding Communications (ROC) Awards, most recently winning first place for an integrated marketing campaign based on a video she directed and produced.

Barbara has been a member of the MPA marketing department since 2004. She joined MPA as a marketing and graphics coordinator responsible for proposal development and visual presentation, and then transitioned to focusing solely on graphic design upon earning her certificate in 2006. In recent years, she has returned to a marketing role while still maintaining her graphic design responsibilities.

Barbara received a Bachelor of Arts in communication from Stonehill College and a graphic design certificate from Massachusetts College of Art. She is a member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) and previously served on the SMPS Boston board of directors in charge of the membership committee.

Monica joined MPA as a part-time data entry clerk in 1995, and has since served in a number of accounting department roles throughout her 18-year tenure at MPA. During that time Monica has standardized many administrative procedures to improve organizational efficiency for all employees. Notably, she instituted a new CRM database and trained the staff on how to use it. This database streamlined marketing efforts, project information, and contact management.

Monica graduated cum laude from Northeastern University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
