Pete Barr, Jr

President / CEO

If you’re ever fortunate enough to chat with Pete, you’ll quickly learn two things. First, his mind goes a mile a minute. Second, he’s still able to listen intently to every word you say. As the driving force of &Barr, he brings an intense, passionate spirit to everything we do. And while running an agency takes vision, it also requires the ability to manage change to the point that you thrive under its ever-changing influences, which Pete has down pat. An integral part of &Barr since before some of his employees were wearing diapers, he still manages to geek out over the creative product of an agency that’s proudly safeguarding the legacy of his dad, who still drops by for coffee every morning. But what’s truly incredible about Pete is his faith. In his employees, in our collective abilities and in our commitment to doing truly good things for truly good clients. While that may seem a small thing to some, it’s anything but for Florida’s oldest agency and one of the oldest independent agencies in the country. Because, for Pete, &Barr is more than an agency – it’s a family. No wonder so many of us feel right at home.
