Fred Haberman is president and co-owner with his wife Sarah Bell Haberman of Haberman & Associates Inc. (HAI), a Minneapolis-based public relations firm whose mission is to support pioneers who are positively changing the way business is done.
Currently, HAI is the lead brand PR firm for Volvo Cars of North America, and manages consumer campaigns for Room & Board, the Bancroft Arnesen Expeditions, Organic Valley and Whole Foods. HAI also leads PR programs for a variety of pioneering high-tech and medical-tech companies, such as Guidant, Stellent, Nistevo, Mozilla Foundation's Firefox Web browser and MTS Systems.
In addition to leading PR campaigns for hundreds of emerging growth companies, Fred also has served as management consultant for dozens of companies.
Before co-founding HAI, Fred worked at Wells & Miller Public Relations, where he co-managed the international media relations program for Federal Express. He then went on to co-manage on-sight operations in Kazakhstan for U.S. Asian Enterprises. This experience awakened a passion for adventure travel, which prompted Fred to form a wilderness travel company and lead numerous remote wilderness excursions to Nepal, Kazakhstan, Canada and New Zealand.
Fred is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and holds a Bachelor of arts degree in history.
