A surprising fact about me:
I have made several water rescues when I was a lifeguard.
Favorite place I’ve visited and why:
Venice Italy, the food, the architecture, the fashion, the people, and the love.
What I originally thought I’d be when I grew up:
As CEO of MadeToOrder, Barbara continues to be deeply involved in the process of delivering high value, real-time information to the MTO’s Sales Teams and clients. Barbara began her career in the industry as a fashion buyer at Spiegel Catalog after earning a degree in Business Marketing from Bradley University.
She brought her years of experience to the launch of the Harwood Company in 1989 where she managed the operations and the creative team of the firm as it grew revenue from $800,000 to $13 million. Today Barbara directs the day to day operations of the company and also looks at the strategic opportunities to grow and innovate.
