Tresa Halbrooks Founder & President
In 2012, Tresa Halbrooks launched LEGACY Consulting, PR & Events, a premier public relations, brand management and special events production firm that focuses on clients ranging from professional athletes and entertainers to corporate entities and non-profit organizations.
Prior to the launch of her company, Tresa directed community relations and events for the Tennessee Titans NFL team franchise for eleven years. She was not only responsible for directing players’ images, community appearances, special events and foundation efforts, but also served as the team's non-profit, community and league liaison. She also planned and directed team events as well as the activities for the Tennessee Titans Women's Association.
She’s coached some of the most well-known celebrities regarding their personal image and philanthropy and her vision has been vital in shaping the overall image of hundreds of athletes across the country for more than a decade. In fact, various NFL players credit her with giving them invaluable guidance that allowed them to become better men, often turning their image around so that they could become the overall athlete they wanted to be. Her company now advises players across the league.
Prior to the NFL, she worked for one of the largest entertainment companies in the country, Gaylord Entertainment and the retail giant, Service Merchandise, working closely with their CEOs on corporate image, special events and philanthropy.
