When I was asked to write a letter of recommendation for Brennen Decker I was delighted. I first met Brennan when he joined the Board of Directors of Hav A Sole, a nonprofit that I’m involved in. For the record, I had never met anyone before that held the vast knowledge of social media, branding and innovation that Brennan does. Brennan is an extremely gifted innovator and highly skilled social media strategist.
In a brief period of time, Brennan was able to evaluate our social media presence, enhance our web site which ultimately has been driving more traffic to our site. Brennan is also a technology genius who is current with personal branding techniques, book launches and is up to date on the marketing flavors of the week.
Along with his many undeniable talents, Brennan has always been an absolute joy to work with. He is a true team player, and always manages to bring the best out of our Board of Directors. I feel very lucky to have him on our team.
I had the pleasure of working with Brennan both internally, and externally for the FinishLine organization. His ability to identify and leverage talent is unlike that of many. Brennan serves as a mentor and true advocate for many within his network. His capacity for engagement and strategic positioning has been incredibly helpful, and heavily relied on by myself, as well as many peers. Brennan’s work both in the field, and behind the lens is truly inspiring and has helped many find their careers aspirations and settle into their respective roles. Anyone that has had the opportunity to work alongside Brennan can tell you how rewarding, and truly reliable his partnership is.Melissa Meltzer

It’s rare to find someone that cares so much about other people’s success the way Brennan does. While interning at Finish Line in the summer of 2017, myself and the other interns were tasked with a case competition focused on improving the communication and relationship between the corporate office and stores. I was recommended to reach out to Brennan, a District Sales Manager, to learn more about the current relationship. Throughout the summer I had frequently communication with Brennan, running ideas by him and testing them. From the start, Brennan was a tremendously eager to help, always making time for my team. I could tell that he truly cared about not only helping with the case competition, but about us as individuals. He would call me and say things like “I was thinking about your project last night and this is something that would be well received by store employees” or “Here’s what you need to emphasize in the presentation to knock it out of the park.” Brennan is a tireless worker that has a burning passion for his colleagues and Finish Line as an organization. I feel truly lucky to have worked with him, and I see him as a great mentor. Everyone can learn something from Brennan.Joseph Keating
Having had the pleasure of working with Brennan since his promotion to District Manager, he has my full endorsement and recommendation. Brennan has proved to be an asset to his peers and to the entire organization. Having assisted with Brennan’s development as a District Manager, he has demonstrated an incessant eagerness to learn and develop, and is constantly striving for the better way. Brennan has contributed his strong technical knowledge to his peer group and the entire company, and has contributed to improving many of the operational analysis tools used by his peer group. Brennan’s passion for growth and improvement have led him down a successful path of constant progression in his role, and his future is bright. Brennan would be an asset to whichever company is fortunate enough to have his skill-set on their team.Corey Coleman
“His ability to see the potential in others is only shadowed by his own work ethic and pride.”
Brennan is the mold for what a great leader is. His ability to see the potential in others is only shadowed he his own work ethic and pride. I have had the opportunity to be mentored by Brennan and I am thankful for the confidence he helped instill in myself. His demeanor when having tough conversations was always uplifting and motivating rather than degrading and judgmental. He built relationships with his team and knew how to inspire everyone differently. To make each individual feel like a contributing member. Through our time together I have watched him reflect on himself to be the best he can leader he can for his team. Brennan has opened doors for me and many others to become strong members of the finishline family. This man cares and continues to motivate me to move in the right direction with all we do.Michael Gilbert
Brennan is a high energy, prideful leader, who has built a track record of consistent sales success. He has a reputation of accountability for his business, and his execution is evident in his teams producing success on success…. record increases!Greg Davis
Brennan is driven and very passionate about the Finish Line brand. I worked with him for a total of 4 years, during that time I was very impressed with his analytics and his personal commitment to his development which has had a positive impact on his business.Rich Brown
“Brennan has always listened to my ideas and even expands on them by adding in his own creativity, business knowledge, and web design expertise. Not only is his work amazing, but he is a great communicator and always able to make a deadline and stick to it.”
Brennan built both my main website as well as my online store. He has been amazingly easy to work with, easy to keep in contact with, and has worked openly to include all of my ideas on both projects. During the process of designing both websites, Brennan has always listened to my ideas and even expands on them by adding in his own creativity, business knowledge, and web design expertise. Not only is his work amazing, but he is a great communicator and always able to make a deadline and stick to it. I can go on and on about Brennan Decker’s work but it honestly speaks for itself. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for web design services or digital marketing strategies, you will not be disappointed.Germaine Walker
Brennan is the bomb! He made me an incredible new custom website- I had one before but it’s the first time I’ve actually had a website I was in love with. He got my aesthetic and my brand completely and was excellent at communication and any tweaks I wanted to make. The feedback from my tribe on the website has been unreal. Highly recommend Brennan!!! If you need a website or want to optimize or update yours with a fresh new look- get ahold of Brennan ASAP!Danielle Prahl
Brennan exceeded my expectations by designing my website and bringing it to life. When we started the process, I didn’t have clarity with what I wanted the end product to look like. Brennan helped me brainstorm and put together a sample to work from, which eventually evolved to what is now radinaizzo.com. He was so easy to work with and extremely fast at getting back to me. I would highly recommend Brennan to anyone that is looking to design and optimize their current or future website.Radina Izzo
