Brian Ferrie is the Editorial & Multimedia Director at HawkGrips. In this role, he coordinates text content on the HawkGrips website (including interviews, feature articles, and blog posts), as well as multimedia elements such as videos, podcasts, photos, and infographics.
“My approach is to focus on the best ways to spread the word about our excellent products and services, as well as the tremendous impact they make on patients and clinicians,” he says.
Brian has played a variety of sports throughout his life and is an avid fitness enthusiast. Having experienced his share of athletic injuries, he also maintains a strong interest in sports medicine and rehabilitation.
“I was primarily attracted to HawkGrips because of its high-quality products and outstanding reputation in the field,” relates Brian. “I also liked how this role would blend my natural interests in writing, multimedia, sports, health, and fitness.”
Brian grew up just outside Philadelphia and earned his bachelor’s degree from Saint Joseph’s University in the city. Prior to joining HawkGrips, he worked for more than 15 years as an editor/writer at a prominent national healthcare publishing company in suburban Philadelphia. His job responsibilities there focused mainly on trade magazines/websites geared toward physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, and other rehabilitation professionals.
“In my spare time, I tend to be pretty active,” Brian shares. “My hobbies include running, biking, weight training, travel, going to concerts, keeping up with global news, and reading (lately I’ve gotten into the James Bond series). I also like spending time with friends, family, and my beautiful wife Vanesa.”
