Starting with The Closet Works in 1995 as an outside consultant, Barry officially joined the team as the production coordinator the following year. When a Design Consultant position became available 1998, he jumped at the chance to make the transition. Meeting with clients, getting to discuss their needs and desires for a specific space and then delivering something designed just for them is what he enjoys most. The ability to create order from chaos and to produce a finished product with care taken to make it both attractive and functional is a pleasure. Of his tenure, Barry says,” The Closet Works cares deeply about both its customers and its employees. That’s why a good number of the employees have been here for over 20 years. That’s why I’ve been here for over 20 years.”
