Principal- Praetorian Public Relations
Matt Shupe founded Praetorian Public Relations in 2013.
The vision for Praetorian Public Relations was to assemble an elite team of professionals, similar to the Praetorian Guard of Ancient Rome.
We have created a full-service public relations, advertising, crisis, and political agency that is a one-stop-shop for individuals, businesses, and non-profits that wanted to win — not just the slow, lazy, traditional, incremental growth offered by other agencies.
Since founding Praetorian Public Relations 10 years ago, Shupe has been named 40 under 40 in the United States by the American Association of Political Consultants, one of the top five communications professionals in California by AroundTheCapitol.com, and contributed to Praetorian Public Relations winning AAPC’s Pollie Award for the best use of Facebook in the country.
Shupe has proven himself as a highly-sought-after expert and leader in strategic communications, crisis management, advertising, social media, and branding.
Shupe is occasionally a guest on Fox Business and is frequently quoted in major publications such as The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, Politico, The New York Times, and FoxNews.com.
Shupe earned Bachelor Degrees from California State University, Fresno in Mass Communication and Journalism with emphasis in Public Relations, and Political Science.
Shupe’s hobbies include earning his clients millions of dollars worth of press coverage, creative advertising campaigns, managing crises, exposing injustices, and electing clients to office. Shupe has no children, a dog named Spartacus, no tattoos, no piercings, is very attached to his cell phone, and maintaining his Ambassador status with Marriott.
