Barbara Cavness, CEO of (un)Common Logic

In 2014, Barbara became the CEO of 360Partners and has since led the company as it has grown in size and services as well as through a rebrand to (un)Common Logic and the addition of a sister company, Unfair Advantage.

Barbara has built an exceptional team at (un)Common Logic where leadership is 66% female, 20% are people of color, and over 10% of our employees have been with us ten years or longer. And (un)Common Logic has received a Top Workplaces in Austin award 9 times since 2013.

Barbara became CEO when she was 4 months pregnant with her first child. As she says, “Learning how to be a CEO while also learning to be a mother was incredibly challenging. As hard as it was, it couldn’t have gone any other way because I was ready to take both those steps in my life and I didn’t want to sacrifice one for the other. The intersection of becoming both a CEO and a mother opened up a deeper well of empathy in terms of how I approach leading different kinds of people: how to strike the right balance of acknowledging each as an individual with their own strengths, challenges, and opportunities while retaining high standards and a clear, consistent environment for all.
