Calvin & Hobbes Dinosaur

Hi, I’m Vincent. You can reach me at vincentvbarr at gmail dot com. On Twitter, I’m @VincentBarr, and on LinkedIn, I’m still Vincent Barr.

I built this website on Jekyll, and haven’t made significant, necessary updates in a long time.

As for this page, the About page, it’s incomplete. It reflects a limited scope of my work and does not display my skills, interests, hobbies, or projects (yet). That will change.

Work

I help both B2B and B2C companies – from Fortune 5s to startups – to grow through marketing, analytics, and structured experimentation. I’ve led marketing, product, and web teams to become more effective and more efficient.

Consulting

Clients include (in no particular order):

  • Google
  • Prudential Financial
  • Tory Burch
  • Citibank
  • OXO
  • Ueno
  • Product School
  • Noodle
  • Thinkful
  • Teladoc
  • Amino
  • Convene
  • eConsultancy
  • Behavior Gap
  • SelfMade
  • Andela
  • Finhabits
  • CoinDesk
  • General Assemb.ly
  • Hearth
  • Handy
  • Code Climate
  • Givewith (CBS Interactive)

Currently, I’m an Advisor to Plug and Play Tech Center, an instructor for Product School, and among Distinguished Faculty for General Assemb.ly. Among my previous expeirence, I’ve held marketing and product roles at MongoDB and Jet.com.

Causes

Co-Organizer of House of Genius, an intimate, bi-monthly event uniting two entrepreneurs with a small, diverse group of panelists to think through a business or design challenge. No professional information is disclosed until the end of the evening.

Advisor, former Co-Chair of the Mentor Leadership Council, and Mentor-Coach at America Needs You, a non-profit that helps first-generation college students recognize and pursue their aspirations, closing a considerable opportunity gap.
