Noah is amazing. He's one of the smartest guys I know in marketing. Not just digital marketing but all marketing...His advice [during the RedBull.com redesign last year] was always both innovative and sound. Plus, he was just damn fun to work with."
When describing his attitude towards his work, Noah Brier likes to keep it simple and to the point: "[I] like the internet a lot." He leads the strategic planning department at The Barbarian Group, where he works with clients such as Samsung, GE, and Kashi. He also founded likemind in his spare time. The project is pushed as a "global coffee morning meet-up" with locations in over 50 cities around the world.
Brier was a strategist at Naked Communications prior to joining The Barbarian Group. In 2009 he was named one of Fast Company's 100 Most Creative People in Business, and one of four social media innovators by BusinessWeek. He's also written at American Demographics Magazine, where he talked extensively on the impact of cultural, media, and demographic trends on the marketing field.
Other tidbits about Brier: He taught himself HTML when he was 12, and is a self-proclaimed fan of hot sauce.
