CEO & Founder
Founded by doyenne publicist Rea Francis, RFMedia is a bi word for quality return. Its success has always been the ‘hands on’ attitude of its principal and her network of professional colleagues. A one-stop shop for print, digital and electronic profiling.
Rea keeps things personal – her deliberately boutique stable facilitates her direct involvement with the principals and management teams for whom she consults.
Initially Canberra trained Francis attributes her consultancy’s longevity to those educative years of liaison between parliament, government and media. She began business with a concentration of clients in show business, publishing, hospitality and tourism. As press agent to stars, national and international film and TV distributors, Australian and New Zealand production houses she travelled constantly between Australia and Cannes, London, Paris, LA and New York. It was a perfect training ground for today’s portfolio across qualitative travel, hospitality, restaurants, food produce, wine and spirits.
The combination is a delight for hoteliers, restaurateurs, wine makers, fine spirit purveyors and regional produce merchants.
RFMedia has clients as far afield as WA’s Margaret River, NSW’s Mudgee, Byron, Ballina and Tweed River regions, Queensland’s Brisbane and Gold Coast, Bali’s Ubud, and France’s sassy Mama Shelter group in France, Turkey and USA.
A born networker, Francis is also renowned for her egalitarian functions at Lucio’s Restaurant in Sydney where a welcomed mentoring element threads through her popular tables.
She is a member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers, The Wine Communicators of Australia, committee member Northern Rivers Food and a board member of the Northern Rivers Community Foundation.
