Applications Administration-Business Operations
Barry routinely steps up and fills a leadership role without being asked, especially
when he sees that the circumstances clearly require it. A recent example is his
coordination of the parking gates project. Barry took on a much larger role than
initially anticipated, and the project wouldn’t have gotten done without his persistence.
Barry took the initiative to work after hours with a colleague to ensure a key piece
of work got done. It was a critical point in the process, and the vendor said that
if the problem weren't resolved that night, they would not be back. Barry
went above and beyond to show the vendor exactly where the problem was and how
to fix it. His work helped keep the project on schedule and preserved a productive
relationship with the vendor.
He takes this kind of approach to every project he’s put on. Barry is very technical
and analytical, but also very much a natural leader and interested in self-improvement
and growth. He even enrolled in the Mountaineer Leadership Academy while completing
his master’s degree.
