Maureen Sherrard is a Chilean – Irish global trotter. She has over 15 years’ experience in the advertising industry in both London and China.

Before Maureen joined Goodstein in 2013, she was an agency producer for Proximity in Beijing, initially working as resource manager but rapidly moving towards the production of internal, online films and TVCs, including The People’s Car Project – Building the Car Series, the People’s Original film and the Think Tank series.

At Goodstein, her sole focus is to make the impossible, possible. Might it be the world’s 1st 3D printed stop-motion animation or a hand-stitched fashion line by the Yi minority mothers of Yunnan, her wide network of contacts is an asset for every production she has worked on.

Maureen was also the executive producer to This is Sanlitun, a feature-length independent film officially selected at the Toronto Film Festival in 2013.
