Our Approach

The Bulleit Group is an established, San Francisco-based strategic communications firm, founded in 2012 by Kyle Arteaga and Alex Hunter. From the beginning, we’ve helped our clients tell stories that matter and helped solve some of their most complex communications and reputation challenges.

Whether you’re launching an AI-powered enterprise application, autonomous vehicle or a advanced robotics platform, we’ll make sure that your announcement will turn heads. If you just received funding, or want to head out to raise with more validation, we’ll lend a hand. And if you’re running full speed ahead, we’ll help you extend your reach with fresh content, innovative angles, and plum positioning for industry events.

Our team in San Francisco, Nashville, Portland, and Washington, D.C. consists of anthropologists, data scientists, physicists, politicos, athletes, and journalists all turned master storytellers. Our creative studio is built to create bespoke multimedia content. We get fired up when uncurbed experimentation leads to reinvention.

  • “We know the importance of choosing the right partners. So when it came to telling the Orbital Insight story we chose The Bulleit Group. They understood our goals and built the program around that. As a result, we’ve been flooded with requests from prospective customers, partners and investors.”

    James Crawford, CEO Orbital Insight
  • “The Bulleit Group takes the view that media attention is the byproduct of a great narrative — an axiom that’s often overlooked in the publicity frenzy of tech PR.”

    The Holmes Report
  • “I wasn’t entirely convinced I needed a PR firm, but Bulleit convinced me and I’m beyond thrilled I decided to work with them. The high level of senior team involvement, willingness to dig in and get their hands dirty and ability to simply get things done are unparalleled and have helped raise the Flexport brand tremendously.”

    Ryan Petersen, Flexport CEO
  • “When providing examples of its work, furthermore, Bulleit manages to circle the outcome back to an actual business objectives like stock price, business and partnership leads generated and sales goals.”

    The Holmes Report
  • “They introduced me to almost every aspect of their jobs, from press briefings to pitches to awards and speaking. No matter what company or assignment they were working on, each person used a combination of industry knowledge, creative thinking, and collaborative work to do their jobs.”

A porridge-eating, directionally-challenged news junkie, Kyle used to chase crop footage and hobo graffiti for a living. Now, he helps companies tell their most captivating stories.

Alex Hunter
Managing Director and Founder

Alex spends his time on the company’s image, management, and operations as well as encouraging and motivating employees via esoteric Arrested Development gifs.

Kelly Mayes
Vice President

When she’s not guiding the Nashville office to new heights, Kelly is often spotted chasing her two beautiful, beguiling children in the indefensible Southern heat.

You might find Leslie fighting for equal rights or wrangling a massive spreadsheet. Either way she is known for dogged determination and her data-driven philosophies.

Stephanie Donily
Vice President

Stephanie comes up with creative media relations strategies for clients and has a healthy obsession with dogs, college basketball, tacos from Taqueria Cancun, and Crossfit.

Former fashion blogger turned tech PR pro, Kimberly is a media maverick who believes in early morning workouts, healthy eating, and giving back to the community.

Rachel Chibidakis
Account Manager

Known affectionately as “Chibby,” Rachel will outgun you on any long-distance run and then buy you a microbrew as consolation afterwards—just ask Hunter.

Ashley Ryan French
