authentic, strategic, and a supernova of energy

I was in my 20’s in “startup heaven”, Silicon Valley, California. At my first job, as employee number five, I was tasked to set up worldwide retail distribution channels for this incredible new device, the computer mouse, selling for a whopping $449. After two intense weeks driving across 13 countries in Europe, I negotiated sales and signed major distributors, acquiring pivotal life lessons along the way.

With each new job in the exploding tech sector that followed, I discovered I had a pronounced communication gene. It showed up when I helped computer hardware and software developers understand bundling mice with computers had value, and when blowing away an audience with an industry-first color graphics card.

This was noticed by WordTech Systems, Inc. and I was hired to develop the company’s first marketing and sales plan, manage a staff of 28+ people and create standards to grow a healthier work culture.

The next lesson learned was that companies can be insanely volatile. After only months at a company that courted me for five years, this start-up fired the entire marketing department at an early morning breakfast meeting.

Barbara was born with drive, curiosity and creativity; her skillsets are well-learned and well-earned.

I simmered all the way home, but grabbed the phone and started making calls. Those early years of being fair and direct with people, demonstrating a passion for work and delivering on promises gave wings to what today is Marsh-Wetherell.

Our company grew from tech to service clients in multiple sectors, from nonprofits to retail, from animal welfare and youth support organizations to global logistics and the arts. Well-traveled and versed in customs, regional differences and cross-cultural interactions, we expanded our reach throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas.

We’ve become a trusted agency, creatively driven and renowned for synergistic programs and meticulously managed projects.

*In addition to spearheading Marsh-Wetherell, I serve on a number of Boards and volunteer for local non-profits.
