Background: Barry’s background began with transforming thinking within footwear retail stores in the fields of customer service and personal customer fulfillment. It is still an area which inspires him to this day. He began and still remains a passionate advocate on customer fulfillment practices and culture change in retail stores.
After a great deal of research and planning, he quit his 6-figure job to take a leap for a personal dream. He founded footwear Industry website ShoeCircle in 2014 as a B2B buying portal for Australia’s Independent Footwear Industry. ShoeCircle has facilitated new collaboration through innovation while revolutionising wholesale purchasing behavior.
