Barry is one of football’s most respected agents, having built his reputation on strong foundations of trust and honesty.

His success has been based on a marriage of convenience between sport and business, with an inside working knowledge of both the sports arena and the commercial boardroom formed over a career that spans four decades.
The formation of his own event management company saw Barry work with Bobby Moore and organise sports and large corporate events for the likes of MTV, News International and Channel 4.

Barry’s clients included Dame Kelly Holmes, for whom he secured a $1m contract with Nike, as well as other top athletes and Olympians in snowboarding and the four-man bob.

He has worked for David Beckham, was chairman of the Martin Keown testimonial committee – raising more than £1m – and is renowned for creating the Masters Football tournament format.

Barry boasts strong working contacts with many agents and clubs around the world and relationships in the showbiz and music worlds, while his global commercial contacts include McDonalds, Nike and Adidas.

He says: “I have always retained a transparent, ethical approach to business. Clients always come first – I work for them, not the other way round. I am respectful of all my clients and have a relationship with all that centres on trust.”
