FACTEUR PR is a boutique integrated marketing and communications studio based in Cleveland, Ohio. We work alongside independent businesses, nonprofits, creative brands, and agencies across the country in making the most of their public relations, social media, content marketing, creative projects, and more.
FACTEUR was founded in 2016 by Reena S. Goodwin, who wanted to commit to helping build brands through obtainable, inspirational, and actionable storytelling.
Goodwin began her marketing career with Sony Music in 2004 while earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Affairs Journalism at The Ohio State University before relocating to New York City, and now she calls Cleveland home. She has spent her career in integrated marketing and communications, working for and with the music, arts, culture, lifestyle, nonprofit, special events, travel, food & drink, retail, and education industries.
For more than 12 years, she's worked alongside reporters and editors on feature stories in national media outlets, from Rolling Stone, to CNN, to Food & Wine and NPR, as well as built strong relationships with local and regional media. Her digital and social media campaigns have garnered attention in USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, and more. Goodwin is also blogging evangelist and content strategist with world-class organizations like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and Columbia Records on her list of credits.
Additionally, Goodwin has presented or participated in presentations at FearlessCon, SXSW, and the American Alliance of Museums Annual Meeting + Museum Expo. She currently serves on the communications committee of the American Advertising Federation of Cleveland.
She has been recognized by New York Times bestselling author Chris Guillebeau, Inc.com, PR Couture, Career Contessa, She in the CLE, and cleveland.com for her varied and passionate career path.
A true ENFP, Goodwin loves spending time with family and friends, enjoying live shows, visiting museums, DJing, reading books and blogs, writing (for fun!), trying out new restaurants, traveling, healthy cooking, and photography. She lives on Cleveland's east side with her husband, daughter, and two cats.
