When Aaron accepted a role as a Fearey senior account executive in 2005, he had little idea that he was stepping onto a path that would lead to ownership of one of the region’s most iconic public relations firms.
Since taking over as Fearey’s CEO and president in 2014, Aaron has led the firm through continuous double-digital annual growth, and solidified the firm’s reputation as a creative communications pioneer. When the City of Seattle secured its first NHL team in decades, local leaders turned to Aaron to help steer the rollout. When a construction disaster brought despair to one of the city’s most familiar streets, he was enlisted to help bring clarity to the confusion.
Named to the “40 under 40” list by the Puget Sound Business Journal and PR Week, Aaron is committed to making a lasting impact throughout the region and beyond. He is involved with The ArtsFund and Children’s Hopechest, and served as the second-youngest president of the Public Relations Global Network, an organization with 54 offices on six continents.
Aaron is a firm believer in the “never eat alone” mentality, with one lonely exception: breakfast. If anyone would like to join him at 4:30am, they’re more than welcome.
