M. Scott Tallent - Founder, President, CEO & Chairman of the Board of Directors
In 1999 Mr. Tallent graduated from the University of Tennessee with a B.S. in Human Ecology - Marketing/Business. After college Mr. Tallent began his career working in the title industry as an abstractor but knew he wanted to be involved in the apparel industry. Mr. Tallent had always had a passion for sports and a great admiration for our nations military personnel. What he recognized was the apparel industry lacked a brand that represented our nations military personnel while at the same time could capture the will and determination of an athlete. In 2004 the search began to create an apparel brand that would possess a meaning that reflected the characteristics embodied by these individuals while able to provide enhanced tech quality. Mr. Tallent's pursuit led him to discover the name THADDEA and in 2005 the Company was formed, which is now known as the brand of Courage and Bravery.
