About the Owners...
Mary Therese Friel, Founder & CEO
Mary Therese Friel established this company in 1987. She is a former Miss USA, Ford Model, National Spokesperson, Goodwill Ambassador and Author. Her career in the modeling industry began at age 11 and spans four decades. Her experience as a model, celebrity, coach and agent, provides her with a unique and valuable perspective of both sides of the business.

Kent Friel, Executive Director
Kent Friel joined the company in 1995 as a full partner and has contributed to more than 20 years of the agency’s success, in the training and development of models and talent, casting, production and management.

Community Involvement...
As Miss USA, Mary Therese Friel had the opportunity to meet and talk with Muhammad Ali. It was an experience that changed her life. During their conversation, Friel asked Ali what really mattered to him and if he had any words of wisdom for her. Ali offered the following enlightening quote, "Service to others is the rent we pay for a room in the hereafter." Since that day Friel has carried that message with her everywhere. As a result of this meeting, Friel dedicated a large portion of her life to volunteerism. For her efforts, she has been given the 1,000 Points of Light Award through the Independent Sector and Give 5 in Washington, D.C.

Friel has made this mission a core component of her company. Mary Therese Friel, LLC is committed to making a difference in the community and leading by example. Volunteering is one of the cornerstones that the business is built on.
