Gatesman PR does more than hawk headlines.

Our approach combines earned, influencer and social to motivate action against business goals and drive influence across targets. To do this, we challenge ourselves to analyze performance beyond the vanity metrics of impressions and advertising value equivalency (AVE) to demonstrate true return on business investment. We lead clients to better define their purpose by pushing timely, topical and relevant content to the forefront, all the while ensuring an authentic and meaningful experience for target audiences.

We're here to thrive through change and build success while imagining new possibilities for the future.

We are Gatesman.
