Approaching the annals of old age, Olivia Myers Farrell, CEO, Arkansas Business Publishing Group has agreed to finally reveal many of the hidden secrets about her nearly 40 year long struggles in the media, sales, and marketing world here in Arkansas.  In addition to this titillating tale and the lessons she's learned, she will shamelessly plug the products and progress of ABPG, her beloved Arkansas Business Publishing Group, whilst she still has breath in her.  

Olivia Farrell is the Chief Executive Officer of the Arkansas Business Publishing Group that publishes Arkansas Business, Little Rock Soirée, Little Rock Family, and over 20 other niche publications and websites that include such diverse titles as the Innovate, Arkansas Brideand Little Rock Guest Guide.
The company has been honored with over 105 national and local awards for outstanding journalism, publication and website design, and excellence in publishing and web development. Both Arkansas Business and Little Rock Family have received the highest award given by their national organizations, the Alliance of Area Business Publications and Parenting Publications of America, respectively.
Farrell graduated magna cum laude from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and studied political science in Vienna, Austria. She began her publishing career in 1978 when the company’s annual revenues were $100,000. Today, the Arkansas Business Publishing Group enjoys revenues exceeding $9,000,000 and employs 80 people.
Farrell has been included every year in the Arkansas Business Power List since 2003 and was recognized as an Arkansas Woman of Influence in 2010. In July 2012, Governor Mike Beebe presented Farrell with the Distinguished Citizen Award at the Arkansas Community Service Awards. In 1988, she was honored by the Arkansas Jaycees as one of 10 Outstanding Young Arkansans. The May 1985 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine featured Farrell in its 100th anniversary issue. The national article, “100 Young Women of Promise,” included Farrell as the only woman from Arkansas.  In 1984, Farrell was honored in New York by the National Council of Women of the United States as a Young Achiever.  Each year the Council cites six young women in the country who have achieved exceptional success in their careers at an early age. Ms. Farrell was the first woman from Arkansas to be chosen for this honor.
Farrell has a long-standing commitment to the community.   She has served as the representative of the 19th Airlift Wing Command (LRAFB) on the Air Mobility Command Civic Leader Program, one of only 30 civilians in the United States. In addition to her service as Chairman of the Board for her own company, she has served on the Board of Trustees for the Arkansas Arts Center and the board of directors for the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas, the Alliance of Area Business Publications, the Arkansas Rep Theatre, the Arkansas Business and Education Alliance, the NCCJ, Arkansans for the Arts, Our Town, Our Way, Inc., the Association of Arkansas Entrepreneurs, and Independent Community Consultants. She has served on the Governor’s Task Force for Entrepreneurship in Education, the Junior League of Little Rock Advisory Board, the Worthen Bank Women’s Advisory Board, the Arkansas Executive Forum and the Community Advisory Board for the University of Arkansas Medical School.
She has also had the pleasure of working with such outstanding organizations as the Single Parent Scholarship Fund, the United Negro College Fund, the Good Faith Fund, the Arkansas Community Service Awards, the Arkansas Educational Television Network, KLRE/KUAR, Florence Crittenton Home, Youth Home, Arkansas Chamber Singers, Planned Parenthood, the Arkansas Women’s Forum, and the Arkansas Women’s Political Action Committee.
Farrell has two children, Max and Zoe, who are 26 and 18 respectively.
