The Fine Print

If you’re looking for recycled ideas or someone to always agree with you, founding partner Aaron Perlut is not your cup of tea.

A former senior Omnicom counselor and communications executive for two of the nation’s largest energy companies, he has spent more than 20 years in media and marketing helping a range of organizations — from Fortune 500s to professional sports franchises to economic development authorities to well-funded startups to non-profits — manage reputation and market brands in an evolving media environment.

An early adopter in the social media space, creating online communities and working closely with bloggers before they became accepted in mainstream media, Aaron develops unique marketing communications and reputation management strategies meant to break through the clutter of today’s crowded media environment that straddle both new and traditional media realms and has counseled organizations including H&R Block, Capital One, the St. Louis Regional Chamber, CafePress, the National Football League, aisle411, SunEdison, LockerDome, UPS, Anheuser-Busch InBev, Charter Communications, Papa John’s, and the Karate Kid Haircut Association.

He began his career as a television producer and continues to contribute to ForbesSocialMediaToday, VentureBeat, HuffingtonPost, ESPN.com, and other media outlets.
