founding Member #2

the100,inc. Advisory Board | panelist 5.18.16 Marketing Discussion

Barry was born and raised in Dilworth, MN.  Graduated from Dilworth High School and attended MSU, now MSUM and studied Pre-engineering and Computer Science.  Worked at WDAY TV while in school and took a full time position with them in 1981.  Spent 7 years as an operations engineer before moving into Television ad sales in 1986.  In 1989 he accepted a sales position with Artco Promotional Products and had no idea it would lead to a lifetime career in the Promotional Products Industry.

He has been involved over the years with many local organizations raising money for the Vision 2000 project, volunteering with Big Brother Big Sister, working on the Fargo Airsho Committee for over 20 years and chairing the Military Affairs Committee with the Fargo Chamber.  Barry is also a Leadership Fargo Moorhead graduate going through the program in the mid 90’s. When he’s not working or volunteering, he’s spending time with his wife and 11 year old son who’s involved in both Hockey and Baseball which allows for little down time.  They spend most summer weekends at the family lake cabin on Big McDonald lake near Vergas, MN.
