Barbara Reed


As a seasoned marketing communications consultant I bring a keen ability to quickly assess a company’s needs to bring insightful clarity to business communications and marketing content. My goal is to help businesses and their leaders make their messages clear and meaningful, bringing out the unique value that sets them apart.

Prior to founding Terra3 Communications in 2004, I was director of marketing communications for Insight Enterprises, a $3 billion Fortune 1000 global reseller of computer technology products and services. I was responsible for branding, marketing communications, internal communications and public relations.  I also directed marketing and communications programs for World Book and the video game division of Bally Manufacturing.

In addition to my passion for clear communication, I am a lifelong dog lover and share my home in the Chicago area with my husband, Joe and our Bouvier des Flandres.
