Brian Barr, Managing Director
Brian started his career in the Radio Industry at the age of 13 by designing his very own Radio Station in his bedroom using a collection of equipment 'cobbled' together with the help of school friends.
The local television station heard about these enterprising young school boys and their hobby and covered the story on the evening news.
Brian then went into Hospital Radio whist still at school, he also volunteered to help at BBC Radio Leeds, reclaiming tape! After a spell at college, he took a position at Pennine Radio as a Technical Operator, expanding his experience. Brian then secured a job at Hereward Radio as an Engineer, helping construct the new radio station; after eighteen months an unmissable opportunity arose to become Chief Engineer at GB Radio in South Wales - attaining the accolade of youngest Chief Engineer in the network! It was whilst working here that Brian was 'head hunted' to become Chief Engineer at Radio Broadland in Norwich responsible for setting up the brand new station.
After ten years at Broadland, he took the major decision to leave and launch Barrcode with the idea to write software solutions for the media industry.
Brian's interests outside his business consist of flying, he is a keen aviator owning his own aircraft, having held his PPL (Private Pilots License) for the last fourteen years. Also, he is a talented professional photographer, Brian has been part of the Web Team for Pilot' magazine for the last two years, this enables him to pursue his love of flying whilst being actively involved with articles requiring photographs for the magazine.
Suzie Vincent, Sales Manager
Suzie's role in the company is as chief organiser.
She has been with the company for over eight years and during that time has worked in all areas of Barrcode. Suzie has organised all of the exhibiton stands including SBES, NAHBO, IBC and BVE shows. Barrcode was voted 'Best Stand' at SBES through Suzie's imaginative use of antique broadcast paraphernalia - including an ancient video of Brian building his first radio station in his bedroom!
Suzie is a bit of a technophobe, however, this has never held her back working for Barrcode as she is a 'demon' negotiator.
Outside of business, Suzie is an accomplished horse rider having competed at national level in show jumping and showing.
