Ray Barry joins NAID, Shred School teams
Effective Sept. 23, Ray Barry will join the NAID staff as its Chief Shreducation and Member Relations Officer. Barry is well known in the secure destruction industry as the former dean of Shred School from 2005 to 2012 and his many years serving on the NAID Board of Directors. In his new role, Barry will run NAID’s Shred School program and membership department.
NAID President Tom Huth of Allshred Services, Inc. said, “Ray adds a lot of depth to the NAID management team. The association continues to grow and Ray’s reputation as a tireless advocate for the secure destruction industry fits perfectly into our plans. The success of Shred School since NAID acquired it last year is a testament to Ray’s industry clout. We see him stepping right back into that role along with a number of other responsibilities that suit his many talents.”
In joining NAID, Barry leaves his position as Director of Sales for the Eastern Division at Access Information Management.
“Anyone would be extremely lucky to work with a first-class company like Access and I have been very fortunate to be part of their team,” said Barry. “They are quality people who always put customers first. That’s what attracted me to them and why I continue to respect them.”
Nathan Campbell, Chief Operating Officer at Access and a past NAID board member, said his company understands and supports Barry’s decision.
“Of course we’ll miss Ray, but he has served us very well over the last year, and we know that both training and secure destruction are his first love,” said Campbell. “Besides, as a NAID member, Access will also benefit from having Ray working for the industry.”
“I learned that I really enjoy helping small businesses achieve success,” said Barry. “It’s what I liked so much about Shred School and why I am excited about joining the NAID team.”
