I’m Tim Hennessy.

Partner, Vice President of Growth & Innovation

You might say I’ve been around the block. As Vice President of Growth and Innovation I’m really great at finding innovative ways to connect clients and audiences.

I began my career in broadcast television news production and creative services before finding my way into advertising sales and sales management. Finally seeing the light – 25 years later – I struck out for the ad agency side of the business.

I’m so glad I did, and so are our clients.

You see, I like people and will go to great lengths to help you succeed. No matter where I’ve worked, I’ve always focused on the client and I’m driven to help them reach their goals.

Community-centric, I serve on multiple local government boards. I understand the struggles, triumphs, and obstacles that come with owning a small business because my wife Tricia and I own one too. This unique perspective helps me relate to Rivet clients and share what I’ve learned.
