Barbara E. Hogan is a co-owner and vice president of Afidence, launched in January 2010. Barbara envisioned a company built on honoring people. That vision formed Afidence, which comes from Latin for “joining in trust.” It’s a principle that Afidence team members live every day. As an INFJ, Barbara is creative, insightful, passionate, and altruistic. Her leadership embodies the heart and soul of Afidence.
FOUNDING TIMBELO, INC.
In 2016, responding to a need for Afidence clients to have a trusted partner in product acquisition and recruiting, Barbara launched Timbelo, Inc., a woman owned WBENC / WOSB (SBA 8(m)) certified company. After successfully establishing the company in 2017, Timbelo received an offer they couldn’t refuse and sold the product and recruiting side of the business to Afidence. Timbelo continues on with the name and brand as a business advisory company. Barbara is also available for Board positions, public speaking, as a panelist, an interviewer, and moderator. To learn more about how we can empower your road to success through inspirational mentorship, developing business processes that elevate, and provide higher perspectives through trusted business partners, visit us at Timbelo.com.
Barbara's background includes over eight years of business strategy and management with Afidence. In addition, Barbara has worked with enterprise companies such as P&G and GE. Barbara’s passions include mentoring and inspiring others to reach for a better tomorrow personally and professionally today. She is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University with Bachelor of Science degrees in psychology and social justice. In 2016, Barbara also became an Ordained Sr. Chaplain with the IFOC.
Barbara has a strong sense of integrity, bold thought leadership, and deep respect for others. “When you truly believe that your business is about people,” explains Barbara, "And offer an environment of respect, trust, and excellence, then everything else just falls into place.”
