It’s an ultra-competitive market for talent right now, and Barry’s got the beat on what it takes to attract and retain the best of the best. He focuses on the design and implementation of systems and processes that support the acquisition and development of talent for KFI Engineers. His responsibilities encompass recruitment, training and development, coaching and mentoring, and performance management.
“I’ve always been fascinated by how and why people do what they do, but the interest was more from a business perspective. Finding the intersection between the firm’s objectives and our employees’ personal motivations is the best way to increase the capacity of the organization. And it’s infinitely rewarding to see employees flourish as we accomplish the firm’s mission and do effective work for our clients.”

  • Over 30 years of human resources and sales experience in a variety of companies and industries.
  • Multiple roles within professional services for over 15 years.

Outside of the office, Barry finds himself in the kitchen cooking, researching his next big trip, playing tennis, and spending time with family and friends.

"I love the smaller size of the firm. The pace is energizing, and I enjoy the speed at which we make decisions. I also love the culture – personable, caring, collaborative, and customer-focused."
