Eyes to the Skies
Barry started his career in the aviation industry after obtaining an Aircraft Engineering degree in the early 1980s. He worked at Pan American World Airways and two airport FBOs, but a slowdown in the airline industry caused him to seek other options to earn a living.
Accomplished Business Services Entrepreneur
An opportunity in the hospitality industry took Barry through a decade of retail and operations management experience, reaching the position of Director of Support Services at Vie de France, a multi-national chain of French Bakery Cafés. Wanting to gain additional knowledge about technology applications in business, he further studied Software Engineering and System Administration. With these additional qualifications and his experience in business operations, Barry moved on to work for some of America's largest technology and telecom companies including MCI (now part of Verizon), AT&T and IBM.
Passion for Optimization
Although Barry started his first business in 1990, by 2000 he had become a full-time entrepreneur and has since successfully established several successful businesses to provide processing and optimization services to growing companies. Barry's greatest passion is to help senior leaders and teams convert their organizations into principled workplaces and to become top performers through productivity optimization practices.
