Brett Harned

Sr Project Mgr
Happy Cog
Brett’s fascination with the creative process and his passion for concise communication, strategy, and attention to detail means that Happy Cog’s clients get a project manager who immerses himself in the work product, not just timelines and milestones. Brett’s deep understanding of web process and his ability to apply methodologies to any project makes clients happy. He is also adept at translating the language of web design to our clients, which can sometimes get confusing and conceptual. Brett manages projects large and small, and all of them receive the same level of care and dedication. Zappos.com, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National Constitution Center, and the Presbyterian Church (USA) are among some of the clients Brett has had the privilege to work directly with. Prior to joining Happy Cog, Brett served as Senior Project Manager at Razorfish. There, he managed large multi-disciplinary teams and implemented creative strategies resulting in websites and comprehensive digital advertising campaigns for companies such as Wyeth Pharmaceuticals and Aetna. If there is one thing that Brett will tell you, it’s that project managers are not robots. Sure, they might rely on dates and numbers, but they have hearts too! Part of out Philly-based PM team, Brett practices what he preaches on his blog about his own adventures in project management (brettharned.com). When Brett isn’t wrangling timelines and budgets in the office, he likes to discover new music, experiment with photography, and explore the City of Brotherly Love with his wife and two daughters.
