Leadership Hall of Fame | Richard Barton, technologist

In career, tech on August 5, 2014 at 2:05 pm

If consistency and the ability to produce are the goals, Richard Barton is the king of Silicon Valley–even though he lives in Seattle.

Mr. Barton’s successes have not brought him the multibillion-dollar returns of the latest tech sensations, or the name recognition of some of tech’s leaders. But by producing and investing in a series of successful start-ups, Mr. Barton, 46, has managed to accomplish something few others have done.

“You can name people who are richer than Rich, but you can’t name very many people who have his track record,” said Nick Hanauer, a Seattle venture capitalist who was an early investor in Amazon and is a close friend of Mr. Barton’s. “You will find very few people in this country who have as many times created something from nothing.”
