Karyn Barsa portrait

I am uniquely qualified to help you build a board that is your secret sauce for success.


I have led vibrant premium-brand organizations as a CEO, COO, and CFO and I have extensive experience as a board member for both public and private companies. I lend advice and counsel to strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions, succession planning, brand building, and various other areas that benefit from my leadership experience in finance, operations, and corporate management.

My favorite moments in business are human-centered: empowered teams reaching meaningful goals. My heart soars when stakeholders are aligned to achieve the financial and impact objectives that make a company relevant, effective, and memorable.  

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

John Quincy Adams, 6th President of the United States
