Mat Barbur

Director of Marketing

Hey! I’m Mat Barbur, and I’m the Director of Marketing at WeCreate.

As the Marketing Manager, I manage a team of creative strategists, as well as a team of paid media and growth specialists, handle ad buying for select clients, manage data analytics for all clients, and contribute to campaign strategy for select clients.

Top Skillsets
Our Hype Man

I started out selling shingles and drywall, then realized that co-working spaces were a thing, so I built one into the top co-working space in Chicago (as rated by Harvard Business Review). There, I learned digital marketing from a member and decided that was cool, so I took it on full-time and have managed campaigns for everything from lumber yards to multi-national sports and entertainment brands.
