Recognized as an expert in all stages of entrepreneurship from start-up through exit and beyond, Barbara is The Resident Entrepreneur at The Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center of the Columbia Business School.
In addition to her work at Columbia, since selling her fourth entrepreneurial venture in 2004, Barbara has been consulting with CEO’s of privately held companies and serves on the board of a number of privately held firms.
Prior to becoming a serial entrepreneur, Barbara worked on Wall Street for 15 years, holding senior positions in securities research, investment policy and marketing at Blyth Eastman/Paine Webber and Dean Witter. Immediately before leaving Wall Street, she was Senior Vice President, Director of Capital Markets Marketing for Dean Witter and was the first woman on Dean Witter's Board of Directors. She also served on its stock selection, economic policy and investment strategy committees. An article in the Wall Street Journal about her leaving Wall Street coined the term “The Glass Ceiling.”
Barbara became best known as President and CEO of FPG International and then Acoustiguide. As President of FPG from 1990 to 1997, she took that company from a stodgy 60-year-old stock photography agency with revenues of $7 million to a $45 million world-renowned and technologically state-of-the-art company, known for its highly creative photography and first-rate client service. When she successfully sold the company in 1997 for $60 million cash, it employed 220 in New York, represented 1,000 photographers, and had 40 affiliated companies around the world.
The story of how she turned around FPG is used as a Harvard case study of a highly successful socially responsible business.
