Brian Cooley

Chief Marketing Officer

Over his career, Brian has developed a passion for building powerful global brands, fostering loyal communities and justifying marketing spend to CFO’s. He had a promising early sports marketing career until he accidentally kicked a golfer’s ball out of bounds at a globally televised event. Since that career low, Brian moved onto greener pastures leading B2C and B2B marketing teams in the automotive industry with Land Rover and in the technology and educational sectors with IBM and Blackboard. Prior to joining EverFi, he spent six years expanding Blackboard’s global education impact while overseeing branding, communications and demand generation practices. Having lived in five countries and traveled to over fifty, Brian’s developed a love of cultural interaction and has consumed countless frightening meals in the name of international business. As Georgetown University undergrad and business school alum, Brian’s a passionate Hoya hoops fan. He and his wife live in Washington DC and love traveling and being outdoors with their two boys.
