Oren Frank has a long history in the business world. Born in Israel, Frank began his career at the McCann Worldgroup, a marketing firm. He began working there in 2001 and slowly worked his way up to become CEO in 2003. He left for New York City in 2007 to become the chief creative officer MRM Worldwide. In 2011, he left MRM Worldwide and began working on writing. He wrote several dozen articles for the online magazines HuffPost, Ad Age, and the Marker, an Israeli business magazine.

While continuing his writing, Frank had a new idea to start a business. With the help of his wife, Roni Frank, they created Talkspace. The idea came to both of them after they sought marriage counseling. They enjoyed their counseling and realized the need for people who required therapy across the world. The problem is many people cannot afford a therapist or travel to one often.

Talkspace was created so a client can directly communicate with any therapist around the world. With his own personal experience and business acumen, Oren Frank has the opportunity through Talkspace to help millions who are in need of psychological help.
