Brian Halligan Early Life, Education, and Career
Halligan was born in Westwood, Massachusetts, and grew up and attended public schools in Westwood, Massachusetts. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Vermont and an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management in 2005.
His career began at Parametric Technology Corporation in several roles leading up to senior vice president of the Pacific Rim. Wanting to work in a smaller company, he joined Groove Networks as vice president of sales, where he worked from 2000 to 2004 before it was acquired by Microsoft and rebranded as Microsoft SharePoint Workspace.
After a period as a venture partner at Longworth Ventures, he co-founded HubSpot in June 2006. In HubSpot’s 2016 Year In Review, the company reported $271 million in total revenue and 1,597 employees with headquarters in Cambridge, MA, and offices in Dublin, Ireland (EMEA HQ); Berlin; Singapore; Sydney, Australia; Tokyo, Japan; and Portsmouth, NH. He credits the company’s success, in part, to innovations like the “Alpha, Beta, Version One” policy, in which employees begin proving their ideas might profit the company “nights and weekends” (the alpha phase) before receiving additional resources (the beta and version one phases).
From 2014 to 2016, Halligan also served on the board of directors of Fleetmatics, a provider of fleet management solutions delivered as software as a service, leading up to their acquisition by Verizon for $2.4 billion.
Brian Halligan Publications, Speeches, and awards
Halligan’s first book, Inbound Marketing, was co-authored with HubSpot co-founder Dharmesh Shah. The thesis of the book is that because people now block marketing that interrupts them, such as advertisements and spam, companies need to instead provide information that is useful to prospects, who will then self-identify. Reviewing the book, Meryl Evans said that it contains “elementary stuff…” but it “does a good job for those who don’t have a clue about how to use social media for business.” It was also reviewed in The Boston Globe. As of July 2011, the book was in its seventh printing, had sold 40,000 copies, and had been translated into nine languages. The book was revised and updated in 2014 in a second edition.
His second book, Marketing Lessons, was co-authored with David Meerman Scott. It uses the marketing activities of the rock band The Grateful Dead as an example of this. Scott Kirsner, reviewing this book in The Boston Globe, mentions that the authors say that they were inspired, in part, by an article in The Atlantic by Joshua Green. In 2017, Halligan purchased the “Wolf” guitar once owned by Garcia for $1.9M at a charity auction. An anonymous donor made an additional donation of $1.6M and so the total benefit the Southern Poverty Law Center was $3.5M.
Halligan speaks on marketing and business topics, including at TEDx. He was an entrepreneur in residence at MIT and is a senior lecturer, teaching “Designing, Developing, and Launching Successful Products in an Entrepreneurial Environment”. He previously taught “Entrepreneurial Product Development and Marketing” with Elaine Chen. He is also an occasional lecturer at Sloan on the science of selling and marketing.
