    By Bob Tremblay/Daily News Staff

    Credit for the name MediaBoss goes to Ian Barrett, the creative director of the Framingham-based production company.
    “The name derived from two sources,” explain Erin Hayes, the firm’s CEO and co-owner. “First, it's a very powerful engine - the Boss 302 engine. The other part of this is the Boss Level of a video game - the hardest level to beat.”
    Located at 92 Blandin Ave., the company was launched in 2008 with Hayes and Paul Bouley as owners. The four partners – Hayes, Bouley, Barrett and Nick Clarke - all reside in Framingham.
