An exceptional leader with an impressive record of achievement in multiple, highly competitive markets for over 25+ years, Barry is known for his abilities to build strategic alliances that position organizations for long-term profitability, productivity and performance. Barry will lead the CoreTech sales and marketing initiatives as the company continues to experience exceptional growth into multiple industry markets including: legal, manufacturing, medical, semiconductor, and education.
