Co-founder (with Andrea Coleman) and executive director of Riders for Health. After seeing the extremely damaging lack of vehicle management and appropriate infrastructure in Africa in the 1980s, Barry worked with African colleagues to develop a replicable mechanism for managing vehicles where there is no conventional support infrastructure – no dealership network, for example.

Barry designed Riders for Health's groundbreaking transport resource management (TRM) and transport asset management (TAM) vehicle management systems. He also created Riders' cost-per-kilometre calculator, which allows for the accurate costing of any vehicle in any given physical/financial environment over its mechanical/economical life-span. An important element of the success of these systems has been the organisational and financial development of Riders, headed by Riders' CEO Andrea Coleman. Barry and Andrea were recently profiled on the BBC World documentary, Alvin's Guide to Good Business.
