Fred Cook


Fred Cook has worked at Golin for 30 years. He started as an account supervisor in the Los Angeles office and moved to Chicago 13 years ago to become Golin’s third CEO. Fred credits the company culture for his long tenure with the firm. He spends a lot of time visiting Golin offices around the globe and is constantly impressed by the dedication and enthusiasm of the team.


60 years ago, Al Golin founded the company based on a few simple Midwestern values — humility, hard work and trust. Fred works to preserve those values because they are critical to the people, the clients and the future of the firm.
