Barbie Brewer is a passionate advocate for remote working. She is a Silicon Valley-based Chief People Officer with unparalleled experience of what it takes to lead a fully virtual organisation.

Barbie Brewer began her career in 1996 with a successful Bay Area start-up, building the HR function as the company grew from 20 to more than 500 employees. Following that adventure, she was exposed to more traditional HR while working for IBM and Cisco, based in Europe and the U.S. Through her career, Barbie has worked in or managed all areas of the HR Function, facilities, and IT.  She served as the head of HR for Sportvision and Tiburon before joining Netflix as Vice President, HR in 2011. In 2017, Barbie rejoined the start-up world as GitLab’s Chief People Officer. GitLab was an all-remote company with team members in 54 countries.

She has a passion to enable remote work, build strong cultures that value inclusiveness and foster strong leadership. Up until December 2020 she was Chief People Officer for LoveToKnow Media. She is now the CPO at and heads up TNT Consulting, LLC. In addition, Brewer serves as Chair of the Compensation Committee on the Board of Directors for Amesite.  

Barbie holds a B.A. from Santa Clara University and a master’s in human resources management. Her greatest passion is enabling opportunities throughout the world through remote work readiness.
