Rick Webb is a co-founder and the COO of The Barbarian Group LLC, an interactive marketing and technology firm. Since its founding in 2001, Rick has been instrumental in building the company from four dirty nerds working out of partner Benjamin’s apartment to a multi-city, internationally-recognized interactive creative and technology boutique. In addition to being one of the creative shepherds of the company, Rick has primarily been responsible for developing the celebrated “secret-sauce” of TBG: its consistent ability to deliver uncompromising creative work, and indisputedly brilliant interactive marketing, over and over, even as the company grows. AsCOO, Rick oversees the integration of the Creative, Technical, Software, and R&D divisions of the company, and as a partner, he acts as a new business and client service executive for several clients.
Rick has over ten years experience in design, advertising and “The Internet.” Prior to co-founding The Barbarian Group, he served at Arnold Worldwide during their celebrated Volkswagen days, working with fellow Barbarian partners Keith and Robert on a variety of award winning campaigns. Rick has also worked at Philip Johnson Associates, a Cambridge-based technology-focused advertising agency, and at Ernst & Young LLP, where he was when the Web was born. Rick has a degree in international economics and art history from Boston University, and was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska.
