SAN FRANCISCO, November 30—The Bingham Group, the technology public relations firm founded by September 11 hero Mark Bingham, has folded following his death, and the two remaining PR professionals from the firm have joined SIPR, a San Mateo-based high-tech public relations firm.
 
Bingham was about United Airline flight 93, which crashed just outside Pittsburgh, and is believed to have been among the passengers who attempted to take that plane back from the terrorist hijackers. He was the sole proprietor of The Bingham Group, which was headquartered in San Francisco with an office in New York.
 
Courtney Hohne, who joined SIPR earlier this year after working with Bingham, helped bring two senior Bingham Group executives into her new firm. Judy Curtis assumes the role of executive vice president at SIPR, which has about eight employees.
 
“Joining forces with the talented members of The Bingham Group enables SIPR to serve its clients with an even more broadly and deeply experienced team,” says SIPR president Cordell Koland. “We all share a common belief in the importance of integrity, teamwork, and the ongoing pursuit of self-improvement, client understanding, and industry expertise.”
 
SIPR was founded in 1986 and has worked for products such as FileMaker and PowerPoint and companies including Avistar Communications, Creative Labs, and EFI. The Bingham Group worked for clients including 3Com, NetSanity, No Wires Needed and VARStreet.
