“He was able to effectively lead the new Design group due to his vast design experience and his proactive innovation to influence all Design related aspects of our new department. Barry was a manager I trusted and relied on for years because he was able to build relationships with his staff that brought out their best effort. In addition, I relied on his many creative and effective strategies to manage costs, while maximizing Designer production and client satisfaction of the Web Design group. Barry was a tremendous part of our success in starting our new Web Fulfillment division from the ground up at AT&T (formerly Bellsouth). I highly recommend Barry for his Design and group management experience, work ethic, character and creativity!”

Knowledge & Skills
Creative Director & Team Builder
My management career began as a young man managing a convenient store where I was recognized as the top manager in my district each of the four years in that position. Earning several prestigious awards along the way, my first creative director role was as the Web Art Director for Bellsouth Intelliventures.
As their first Web Art Director, I developed all web design processes and procedures and directed all web related personnel. Web personnel included 25 team members and 4 external vendor groups, representing over 150 designers. During this time, the web fulfillment group sold, fulfilled, and provided ongoing support for over 8,000 websites and many associated products.
• Introduced a visionary telework paradigm which improved product fulfillment and employee retention.
• Introduced a competitive, multilevel hiring range which saved over $140,000.00 per year in payroll.
• Created strategy to transform the design group from “exclusive roles” to a “cross-platform” trained teams.
• Developed and implemented many process innovations for all workflow and delivery processes.
It was awesome!
As the Web Director for Georgia Baptist Mission Board, beginning with only two websites, I’ve lead our marketing team in creating, building and maintaining a web universe which includes: 40 websites (and growing), multiple social networks, eCommerce, mobile apps, online registration, video, podcasts, and other online resources. Collaborating with over 25 ministry groups, we continually develop dynamic marketing strategies specific to individual ministry needs, while aligning together corporately, and perfectly on brand.
Through Georgia Baptist Mission Board websites, blogs, social networks, and online connecting points over 3,500 churches, representing 1.3 million Georgia Baptists, are able to be informed and active participants in Georgia Baptist life, missions, and ministries.
Recognized & Awarded Creativity
Receiving awards and recognition in both creative management and creative design is a rare accomplishment. My early career brought recognition as a top manager in retail. During my years at BellSouth I was blessed to receive top performance awards three times. More recently, I have been recognized and awarded on multiple occasions for my creative web design work. Of course, most meaningful is the appreciation and acknowledgments of my peers in the creative industry.
