Sean O'Brien

MD and founder

I am the MD and founder of AOB PR. I have more than 20 years' experience of UK and international media relations at the highest level and I have been running my own PR consultancy for 10 years. During that time the agency has worked on countless high profile PR campaigns. Prior to founding AOB PR, I was a senior editor on national newspapers for 12 years. I worked for many titles including the Sunday Mirror, Mail On Sunday, The Guardian and Dazed and Confused magazine. It is this invaluable experience that often gives AOB the edge over more traditional PR firms. I know exactly what the media is looking for and how to portray it in the best interests of the client.

Partner

I am the joint managing partner in AOB PR, having joined the agency four years ago. Before that, I worked as an editor in national newspapers for almost 20 years. I am also a former showbusiness editor and know all the key players in British entertainment - both the talent and the journalists. It gives me a unique understanding of the needs of both. I am an experienced broadcaster for BBC TV and radio, ITV and Sky. I am a published author with great contacts in all the big publishing houses. I can connect your brand with the people who matter.
