Barry Brown spent four years in the United States Navy. He is a Vietnam War Veteran and received several medals for valor. From there, Barry became a Police Officer in Connecticut for 25 years and worked in accident investigation. After retiring from the Police Department, Barry and his wife moved to New Hampshire. Barry wanted to go back to work, and G4S seemed like the perfect choice.
Barry has been with G4S for 12 years, starting as a Custom Protection Officer in Manchester, New Hampshire. He worked at a client’s manufacturing plant, and was promoted to Account Manager. Eventually, Barry transferred to a larger account in Hooksett, New Hampshire, where he has been an Account Manager for almost three years.
As an Account Manager, Barry is responsible for overseeing all the client’s security needs. This is a government site where each entrance has 24-hour security. Barry oversees a team of four supervisors in charge of access control and the perimeter of the property.
“I receive all the support I need from my regional office, and there is always an attitude of professionalism,” Barry said.
G4S provides the necessary training for him and his officers. As a retired police officer, Barry enjoys his position. “It’s challenging without being too stressful. This job is a good fit for me,” he added.
