Barry Friedland founded Book Navigators in 2019 after a long stint as co-founder of InnerWorkings, the largest print procurement agency in the U.S. Barry helped take InnerWorkings public in 2006 (NASDAQ: INWK) and today the company’s revenues are in excess of $1 billion annually.
Barry built and ran the book biz at InnerWorkings, where he honed his skills and became over-the-top passionate for books and the people who make them. He’s a lifelong entrepreneur and unapologetic book lover with high standards, a discerning eye and an unwavering aesthetic.
While he thrived at InnerWorkings, Book Navigators is in his comfort zone – a small, nimble, and creative company. It gives him the ability to get to know each of his clients and give each project the time and attention it requires.
Sarah is an expert in all aspects of print production and handles all of the details of a print job from soup to nuts. Think of her as the person who helps you sleep better, because when there’s a project to manage, there is no one more passionate and detail oriented.
Sarah lives in Southwest Michigan with her husband and three daughters. The only thing Sarah enjoys more than print production is spending time at the lake with her family, home schooling her children and traveling north to their cottage.
