Brett Hurt

Founder and CEO
Bazaarvoice

Brett is the Founder and CEO of Bazaarvoice, where he is responsible for guiding the company's strategy. He is a seasoned CEO, and has been pioneering eCommerce innovations since 1998 and online communities since 1982.

Brett has extensive experience in the online marketing arena, especially as it pertains to the eCommerce industry. He founded Coremetrics in February 1999 after spending 10 years developing Internet-based software. Brett helped grow Coremetrics into the leading marketing analytics solution for the eCommerce industry, and Forrester Research rated Coremetrics #1 in the industry. Prior to Coremetrics, Brett was the founder and CEO of Hurt Technology Consulting and BodyMatrix, an online retailer of sports nutrition products. Before that, he was a consultant at Deloitte Consulting and Andersen Consulting (now Accenture). Brett has more than 15 years of Internet programming experience and has developed multiple software applications, including Internet marketing analysis solutions, eCommerce platforms, Web-based classroom management applications, virtual communities, multiplayer online games, and Bulletin Board System (BBS) software. He started programming when he was seven years old, launched a BBS on a 110-baud modem when he was ten, and created one of the first Internet-based multiplayer games in 1990. Brett holds an MBA in High-Tech Entrepreneurship from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a BBA in Management Information Systems from the University of Texas at Austin.

Brett was named Entrepreneur of the Year for Austin in 2009 and is a member of the Austin chapter of the international Young Presidents' Organization (YPO). He is currently serving his third term on the Board of Directors of Shop.org, the leading non-profit industry association for retailers online and a division of the National Retail Federation, the largest trade organization for retailers. He serves as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Wharton School, is an inventor (US Patent #7,050,989), and presents at various industry events and universities. Brett passionately speaks on and interviews other CEOs about how company culture drives performance. He has a long-term aspiration to write a book on the subject, with the working name How to Make Your Company Suck Less.

One of the few and incredibly proud, Brett’s a native Austinite and an enthusiastic supporter of both local businesses and entrepreneurs. He’s dedicated to an overall healthy lifestyle, and is a yoga practitioner and an aspiring vegan. A budding oenophile, red wine is an increasing area of passion (especially cult California reds).

Outside of Bazaarvoice, his biggest and most rewarding project is raising his two children with Debra, his incredible wife. And now there are two puppies in the household too, which adds to the fun (and, yes, chaos at times).
