Barry has touched many lives in many ways in the past, and he continues to do so now.
As a father, he has been a dedicated provider. His children have enjoyed access to a lifestyle and education that any parent would desire to provide.
As a business person, Barry has proven himself to be a successful entrepreneur in the United States. He worked with his father at the H. Verby Company for 15 years before starting his own company, Bradco, in 1996. His dad joined him two years later, and soon after, they opened in Lakewood, NJ, and Hartford, CT; they were on their way. In 2006, Bradco sales peaked at over $1,900,000,000 and pre-tax profits of 90 million with 150 branches. In August 2008, he sold control of the company.
In the meantime, Bradco had grown to become much more meaningful than its humble origins, literally impacting thousands of lives. Barry was respected by Bradco vendors, employees, contractor customers, and even his most aggressive competitors.
Barry’s talents are in two primary areas. He builds loyalty because people trust him and know he’ll do the right thing. He invests in people, and they invest in him. Barry is very pragmatic, getting to core issues quickly, and supporting conclusions and creating change based on a passion for logic and numbers.
Barry is a man who can’t sit still. Soon, he got involved in helping to improve conditions in Africa by starting the Segal Family Foundation. Like he approaches everything in his life, this foundation receives his utmost attention to make a difference by solving problems and getting things done more efficiently and effectively. Because aid in Africa is a broken system, the Segal Family Foundation works to prevent dangerous situations rather than sending support after they occur.
Barry is the father of 6 children, has 15 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Barry said, “As an incentive I offered my baseball card collection to the next grandson.”
Barry started later in life with tennis, and that has been an important part of his activities. He describes his tennis as a declining 4.0. Soon to be a declining 3.5.
