Chief People Officer, Safe Security
Barbie Brewer began her career in Silicon Valley during the dot.com boom of the ‘90s. Since then, she has become an industry-leading expert in developing critical areas of modern business performance and culture, including the C-suite, remote and hybrid workforces, and understanding the future of work.
As Chief Culture Office at GitLab Inc., Brewer contributed to the all-remote SAS company’s growth from 150 employees to over 1,000 in more than 60 countries. She was VP of HR for Netflix when the streaming service expanded from 20 million subscribers to over 150 million. She has led human resources and talent functions, internal communications, and information technology teams throughout her career, helping multiple early-stage and mid-stage companies succeed.
Barbie Brewer holds a Master’s in Human Resources Management and a Bachelor’s in Communication and Business from Santa Clara University.
While Barbie is passionate about her career, the future of work, and impactful leadership, she is most devoted to her family – two teenagers, a supportive husband and three dogs. Her love of family and recognition of the need for strong leadership inspired her to write Lead and Let Live.
