Brendan Egan grew up in the Chicago suburb of Glenview, Illinois. Growing up he always had an entrepreneurial mind and worked to improve upon his own ideas and the ideas of others.
Brendan attended high school at Loyola Academy in Wilmette, where he was introduced to a few entry level jobs at fortune 500 companies. He soon grew to realize that his ways of thinking, ideas, and dedication were things that would go unnoticed at an entry level position in a company with tens of thousands of employees, and was glad to learn this lesson early on.
Brendan went on to attend college at the University Of Illinois in Chicago earning a bachelor’s degree in finance with a minor in economics. During this time, he worked with a few partners on launching new businesses via the internet. It was during this time that he gathered a great passion and expertise for online marketing.
In 2009, Brendan started his first company, a trading educational website assisting thousands of traders from 6 continents. During this time he further learned about business processes, running his own corporation, and especially refined his online marketing skills.
Wanting to branch out to help larger clients with his true passion, growing businesses, he started Simple SEO Group to assist small to medium sized firms improve their online presence and grow their business.
Today, Brendan still heads Simple SEO Group and is constantly looking for ways to not only improve his business, but also improve the business of his clients.
When he’s not working (which he says isn’t often), Brendan enjoys spending time outdoors, traveling, and kicking back to relax.
