Who is your favorite client and why?

Since 2004, I have successfully placed quite a few candidates at a business funding company that provides accounts receivable financing services. Currently, six out of their seven outside sales people were placed by me.

Fun facts about Barry

I enjoy experiencing new cultures. Before I became a recruiter, I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Nepal for two years. I have a deep fondness for the country and its culture. After my wife and I were married, we lived in Kathmandu for a few years and I’m proud to say I can speak conversational Nepali.

I also worked as a musician in San Francisco for many years, playing saxophone and flute. From 1995-2000, I played with the retro-swing band, Indigo Swing.
