Meet Barry
Leader | Visionary | Award Winner | Family Man


Barry has been a BLS team member for over 37 years, serving 21 of those years as Managing Director.
During his term, BLS has undertaken several large initiatives including an office move, an expansion
into another state and merging with another local accounting firm. The firm has also received multiple
community service awards, most notably the Gilman Superstars in Business award from the Delaware
State Chamber of Commerce and Top Workplaces from the News Journal multiple years in a row. As of
January 2015, Barry passed the Managing Director duties along as part of the firm’s succession plan.
He continues to serve as a director/shareholder at BLS and plays a key role in business development
whether through organic growth or merger and acquisition opportunities.

Along with firm initiatives, Barry specializes in assisting clients with litigation support matters, business
valuations, individual and corporate tax and management issues, and corporate service matters for Delaware investment
holding companies, as well as facilitating firm retreats for small to mid-sized accounting firms.

Perspectives from Barry

 “I encourage clients to show me their passion. We do our best work when we know what drives a client to
succeed, working to find creative ways in which to help them.”

“We don’t operate in a vacuum here. We’re constantly urging each other to be outside of our four walls,
talking to other practitioners, other firms, broadening our knowledge and our reach.”
