MILTON, Ga. — Don Rountree, president of communications and public relations firm Rountree Group, said the world of communications is ever-changing. Rountree Group is undergoing a change of its own with a relocation Alpharetta to Downtown Crabapple in an effort to be in the center of its client-base in north Fulton.
Rountree Group was started by Don’s mother 34 years ago in Sandy Springs. After her retirement nearly a decade ago, Don has run the group as its president and has spent 20 years with the company.
The seven-employee company specializes in branding, marketing, digital communications, social media, advertising, public relations and local events.
Rountree said the reason for the move after over a decade in Alpharetta was based in the culture of Downtown Crabapple, its growth and location in what he calls the center of north Fulton.
“Milton is in the center of north Fulton which means we are in the center of our action,” Rountree said. “And that just plays to our strengths.”
The move will allow Rountree Group to serve as a go-between for Milton, Alpharetta and Roswell and will allow the company to place itself in the growing Crabapple Market, he said.
The group was also seeking a certain culture for its new base.
“I think Crabapple Market Place provides that culture which we’re seeking,” Rountree said. “Crabapple Market gives flexibility to not only have a very strong client base because we are in the center of North Fulton, it also gives us that freedom of being able to enjoy everything that Crabapple has to enjoy.”
While most of Rountree Group’s communications are done for national companies, he said they have a strong local client-base that they will serve from their new location.
And as a Milton resident, Rountree said he’s happy to be home.
