Barry joined TS Ag Finance in July 2017. Prior to that, Barry had almost 40 years in leadership positions in agricultural lending at Farm Credit, Bank of the West and Wells Fargo. During that time, he was personally responsible in developing more than $1 Billion in new agricultural loans. He credits this success to developing consultative relationships with his clients while providing constructive credit. His customers have included almost all agricultural commodities in 36 states. Barry also serves as a contributing faculty member for the Finance Module of Texas A&M Agricultural Economist Dr. Charlie Hall’s EAGL Program. EAGL is a leadership program for owners and management of horticultural businesses.

Barry has found TS Ag Finance to be the most gratifying place he has ever worked. It has allowed him to continue his decades-long work to help preserve the family farm and to continue to do business across the entire country.

Barry and his wife live in beautiful Pauma Valley, north San Diego County, California, the last vestige of agriculture in Southern California.
