Gatesman


Gatesman PR is an award-winning, full-service public relations practice that ranks nationally within the Top 100 independent PR firms. We are escapees from the big agency world, which means our team is comprised of talent from leading global public relations firms and newsrooms across the country and yet we provide the hustle and passion of a mid-size firm. We proudly represent regional, national and international brands and provide communications strategies that both promote our clients’ brands and responsibly protect their reputations. We emphasize the importance of leveraging a strong and consistent brand message and activating it through a variety of earned media efforts, including media relations, trade media, blogger programs, speaker series, and social media as well as content creation, trade shows and consumer events. We can do all the things that a large global agency can do, but we do them with a more personal and nimble approach. We offer all the services a leading PR agency should and are qualified to complete them, but WHY we do what we do is what makes us different from other shops. We’re driven to compete and win on your behalf because we’re fiercely competitive and frankly, we hate to lose. Our capabilities include: Communications Strategy Media Relations Social Media and Influencer Relations Social and Digital Content Creation Consumer Events and Trade Shows Reputation Management and Crisis Communications.
