About Brendan Egan

Brendan Egan is a serial entrepreneur who focuses on leverging his experience in development & marketing to create new technology, disrupt existing industries, and make an impactful change in people’s lives.

Born and raised in suburban Chicago, Brendan’s entrepreneurial spirit was alive and well from a young age.  At age 10, he went door to door starting a neighborhood leaf raking and snow shoveling business.  But it wasn’t until college that Brendan had his real taste at the business world.

During the market crash of 2008, Brendan became a successful day trader, growing a personal trading fund.  In 2009, he launched a digital trading education company, LearnToTrade, which had one of the highest rated and most purchased price action trading courses available.  He also worked with hundreds of traders from around the globe offering one-on-one consulting.  He later sold the company in 2012, a year after graduating from college.

Brendan also founded Simple SEO Group which he still owns and operates today.  Simple SEO Group is a Chicago based digital marketing agency, offering website design & development, mobile app design & development, digital marketing campaigns (including SEO, PPC, email marketing, CRO, & social media management), and consulting.

Brendan is also the co-founder & CEO of The Marketing Masters, a digital marketing agency offering full-service marketing campaigns.  The Marketing Masters has offices in Chicago and Los Angeles.

Through the two agencies, Brendan has worked with over 500 clients ranging from startups to fortune 100 companies, and has earned a reputation for delivering results-orientated, ROI-focused campaigns for each and every client.

In 2015, Brendan and long-time friend & business partner John Shegerian launched B.J. Industries, a startup investment company & incubator.  Together, Brendan & John are involved in dozens of startups, both as investors as well as trusted advisors.

Brendan is also co-founder & CMO of Engage, an online platform disrupting the talent & entertainment booking industry.

In 2019, Brendan will be publishing his first book, “101 Tips From The Marketing Masters“, which will focus on providing actionable tips & tricks for businesses looking to improve their digital marketing.
