Rely on Our Team for Personalized World-Class Service

We care, and that’s not just lip service. We work very hard to give each customer the personal attention they deserve. We love our work and build long-term business relationships by providing customers with unparalleled service and results. When you call, you won’t be waiting on the phone and eventually talking to a stranger. You’ll speak with someone who knows your company, your system, and how you like to work. 

We also treat our employees right, so they stay, too; some have been with Barry for decades, becoming fully ingrained in our customer-first values and steeped in our decades-long organizational knowledge. Our technical staff has hundreds of years of collective experience and are trained in the newest technologies so they can provide innovative solutions for each customer.

Our Leadership Team Understands Your Challenges

Each member of Barry’s leadership team has been in the telecommunications industry for decades. They’ve worked their way up through generations of technology, giving them technical knowledge and insights, and passing it along to the team and our customers.

Barry Gerhardt

President & Founder

Barry is a third-generation entrepreneur who began his career following in his grandfather’s footsteps as an engineer. His grandfather opened an electric contracting business and had a steadfast “Customer First” philosophy. Barry learned the ropes while working at his grandfather’s business, first as an Apprentice, then as a Journeyman Electrician, and then Master Electrician for a diverse range of commercial, industrial, and residential customers.

In 1982, with the pending breakup of AT&T Bell’s US monopoly, Barry recognized an opportunity to enter the shifting telecommunications market. That’s when he started Barry Communications.  Throughout his 40+ years of entrepreneurial success, Barry has led his family-owned company with a Customer First attitude, making it one of Barry Communication’s core values. As his business has grown, Barry continues to be an industry pioneer, continuing to leverage cutting-edge technology to drive innovative solutions for his customers. 

Barry Gerhardt and his wife Joni (Executive Vice President of Barry Communications) met in kindergarten are passionate about their business and family. He is very proud of his two daughters and six grandkids. Barry enjoys living a healthy life centered on gratitude, joy, Boston sports teams, and playing golf.
