Eric Fehrnstrom started off as a newspaper reporter. For nearly a decade, he worked at The Boston Herald in a variety of posts – general assignment reporter, political reporter and State House bureau chief. From there, he took the big leap — to government. He served as an Assistant State Treasurer in Massachusetts responsible for media relations. When that stint ended, Fehrnstrom returned to the private sector as Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications at Hill Holliday, a marketing and advertising agency. In that capacity, he provided public relations support to clients for their advertising and marketing campaigns, including some of the biggest brands in the world like Fidelity, John Hancock Financial and Advanced Micro Devices. Fehrnstrom returned to the public sector when Mitt Romney was elected governor. As Romney’s communications director, Fehrnstrom directed all speechwriting, media relations and crisis response for Executive Branch agencies. When Romney walked out of the State House, he walked right into a national campaign for president, taking Fehrnstrom with him as a senior adviser on press strategy and message. Fehrnstrom is a 1984 graduate of Boston University’s College of Communications and lives with his wife, Kathy, and two children in Brookline, Massachusetts.
