Haute Secrets Boston: George Regan of RCG

George Regan is one of the biggest names in Boston as the owner of New England’s largest privately owned public relations firm. For more than 30 years, he and his team have been at the forefront of the hautest social scenes in and around town, opening long awaited restaurants (think STRIP by Strega) and retail shops like New Balance Athletic Shoe. From real estate (Suffolk Construction) and sports entertainment (Boston Celtics and New England Patriots) to universities (Suffolk) and beyond (Mohegan Sun), there isn’t much he and his group haven’t done and done it well.

Today, the man behind some of Boston’s most successful restaurants now has more than 100 clients throughout New England, New York, Washington, DC and Florida. Regan is also an avid supporter of many local charitable organizations, including The American Liver Foundation, Carroll Center for the Blind, Courageous Sailing Center, Beth Israel-Deaconess Hospital and Franciscan Hospital for Children, Urban College of Boston, Perkins School for the Blind, the Sports Museum, and Boy Scouts of America as an Eagle Scout.
