Our CEO:

Brenda J. O’Connor-Marello, CEO and real-time court reporter, is a proud native New Yorker, originally from Plattsburgh, NY, and an Alpha Beta Kappa honors graduate of former Spencer Business and Technical Institute in Schenectady, NY, class of 1994, and certified and licensed through the New York State Education Department.

Shortly after graduation, Brenda joined the freelance court reporting firm of Stephen N. Fiato, CSR, in Albany, New York, where for approximately 16 years she had the pleasure and privilege of working with distinguished local law firms and governmental agencies.

Upon the retirement of the dignified Stephen N. Fiato, CSR, in 2010, Brenda retained the then-current clientele and assumed the CEO position under the new brand of M-F Reporting, Inc. The court reporting and videography coverage areas were expanded to include all of Upstate New York, and realtime transcription was added to the services offered.

Brenda has grown the business to now include multiple complimentary conference rooms with video-conferencing, 24/7 Repository, exhibit hyperlink, and Live Deposition to name a few additional services.

A personal note from the CEO:

M-F Reporting, Inc., is dedicated to its clients. I have enjoyed knowing and working in this industry with the same clients and who I call friends for 22 years as much as I enjoy meeting new clients and friends and delivering what I feel is the most supreme service that can be provided. I always say, “Without you, there is no me.” I’m looking forward to growing for another 22 years and beyond.
