He was integral to the development of the Global Fund’s financial management, fundraising and grant making for more than seven years from its inception in 2002.Drawing on a background in business restructuring acquired while training with Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Barry’s initial post-qualification years were devoted to the successful turnaround of a group of manufacturing companies in Ireland. Following that, he moved to Switzerland as general manager of a financial consultancy firm and later was chief executive of an internet enterprise. His desire to apply business acumen to the advancement of global needs led him to the World Wide Fund for Nature where he was responsible for financial planning and corporate marketing. He developed and implemented WWF’s corporate Conservation Partner initiative and managed other innovative fundraising mechanisms. Barry is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants.
