Barry’s Business Endeavors
After obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science with a minor in mathematics, and a couple years at IBM as a top performer, Barry obtained his MBA in Finance and Logistics from The Ohio State University, where he was named Weidler Scholar and Logistics Scholar. His first job after grad school was as the Financial Controller for the Ford Taurus and the Lincoln Continental Car Programs for Ford Motor Company.
After a stint with Ford, Barry was contemplating the long haul to make it through the ranks in corporate America. As a naturally driven entrepreneur, it was time to go back to forging his own companies.
Barry served as founder, majority owner and CEO of a suite of business-to-business service companies for over 20 years. He sold these companies to four different buyers. Concurrently, he started a software engineering firm and served as founder, majority owner, and Chairman for 12 years before selling MSL to the NASA Hubble telescope contractors. MSL still provides full lifecycle software engineering, systems engineering, and enterprise architecture services and solutions.
Barry’s commercial developments include the Hyatt House Hotel in Minot, Bakken Residence Suites in Watford City, The Office Club in Colorado Springs, The Highlands at North Hill, as well as other development projects in California and Colorado.
Barry is the founder and currently serves as CEO of Precocity LLC, a leading-edge technology company specializing in delivering end-to-end customer experience strategy, with Big Data, Data Analytics, UX, and UI competencies. Precocity clients range from mid-tier businesses to world-renown Fortune 500 companies.
