Brian Hennessy

Co-founder and CEO

Brian is the guy who had the idea for this whole thing in the first place. As CEO of Talkoot, he guides the company’s vision, culture and story. 

He has spent his entire career managing stories for large brands, first as the global writing director for adidas, then as the founder and creative director of Thread, a small but mighty commercial writing studio. Thread has helped brands like adidas, Giro, Jawbone, Umpqua Bank, Sonos and others tell their stories. Brian’s experience building a high-volume copy production process from scratch was the catalyst that inspired Talkoot.

When he’s not starting companies, he’s raising two wonderful daughters and taking ridiculously long runs in the woods.


Talkoot helps DTC  brands tell brand-right, shopper-friendly product stories at scale.  Faster. Together.
