Rick Webb Leaves Barbarian Group

And so it has come to pass. Barbarian Group COO Rick Webb is leaving the digital agency he co-founded back in 2001. From what we hear, Webb has been planning his exit for some time, but it appears he’s leaving on the best of terms. Here’s a statement from TBG:

“After a 10-year run, our friend and partner Rick Webb has decided to pursue other interests. The process has been super amicable, and something that’s been in the works for a while. We’re in really amazing shape now as a company, in better shape business-wise than we’ve ever been. Plus, we’re putting out some of the best work we’ve done in the last decade, and it’s only getting better. Business at Barbarian continues as usual, and we wish our friend the very best.”
