Working 20 years for the same company is a rarity in today’s employment landscape. Global Shop Solutions, a leading producer of ERP software for manufacturing companies around the globe, is proud to announce their Chief Financial Officer, Barry Klein, recently achieved this impressive milestone.
Klein joined Global Shop Solutions in 2000 after serving as corporate counsel for Perry Homes, a renowned home builder in the state of Texas. In addition to overseeing the financial side of Global Shop Solutions, Klein also manages the accounting team, including tax and regulatory compliance.
According to company CEO & President Dusty Alexander, Klein’s contributions to the company over the past 20 years go far beyond expectations. “We hired Barry because he had everything we were looking for in a CFO—a business degree, a law degree, a customer-first attitude and previous manufacturing ownership experience,” says Alexander. “However, we had no idea at the time he would play such a key role in our global growth over the past 20 years.
“Barry led the way in helping Global Shop Solutions become a truly global organization by setting up our international corporations in the U.K., Mexico, Singapore and New Zealand,” adds Alexander. “He also oversees the purchasing and management of the technologies we need to keep our business and our customers at the forefront of the ERP industry.”
Klein’s other major contributions include:
• Putting Global Shop Solutions on the path to be 100 percent debt free (since 2012)
• Contributing to the company’s double digit average annual growth rate over the last 20 years
• Regularly participating in community service, including working with Family Legacy to sponsor children living in Zambia
• Modeling Global Shop Solutions love, serve and care values to employees and customers
“Global Shop Solutions would not be where we are today without Barry’s contributions to so many facets of the business,” says Alexander. “We are grateful for his two decades of service and look forward to many more years of his presence on our leadership team.”
