Brian O’Shaughnessy joined Hims & Hers as its first CCO in October 2022. O’Shaughnessy was not immediately available to comment on when he left that position or his next move.
Hims & Hers helps connect consumers to licensed healthcare professionals, enabling access to high-quality care for conditions related to sexual health, mental health and more. The company, which also offers its own range of products, works with Los Angeles-based Hustle & Co. on media relations.
Brooklyn most recently served as SVP of communications at self-driving technology company Aurora, where she led all communications and marketing efforts.

“We appreciate [Brooklyn’s] contributions during her time at Aurora and wish her all the best in her new role,” the spokesperson added.
Before Aurora, Brooklyn was VP of communications at Nike, spearheading communications for the company’s Converse brand. She also formerly worked at Tesla, managing global communications for corporate initiatives, crises and expansion efforts.
