Brendan McGann - Co-Director 

Brendan is a 3rd Year Financial Economics student and the founder of BMcGannPhotos, a photography and media management based company with a specialization in the automotive sector. He has been capturing and sharing photographs of cars since 2015 and has fallen in love with combining two different creative aspects of his life and putting them into one common passion. Working with some of the largest automotive manufactures in the world such as McLaren, Audi, BMW, Acura, and Pagani has provided Brendan with unprecedented experience and knowledge of the industry. This initial endeavor led him to Hatch where he has assumed the position of Co-Director.


With a passion for leadership and creativity for new ideas, this drives Brendan to continuously take on prominent roles in organizations.
