Fred Bateman has been in technology-focused public relations for 27 years and has guided Bateman Group through 15 years of steady growth by staying true to his vision of helping a more select group of companies make a bigger impact on business and society. A proven PR strategist and writer, he formed Bateman Group in 2003 with a goal of building the agency of choice for disruptive startups and established market leaders alike — a PR industry innovator where content development was a core competency instead of a liability.

A Boston native, he was tapped to open FitzGerald’s San Francisco office in 1998 at age 27, growing it to more than 55 professionals and $5 million in revenue in just three years.
Before joining FitzGerald, Fred was with Boston-based technology specialist Rourke & Company (acquired by MS&L in 1996). He began his career at The Weber Group of Cambridge, Mass. (now Weber Shandwick Worldwide) in 1991.
Fred is a proud graduate of both Boston College and Boston College High School.
