09 Mar Barrett® Announces Bryan K. James as Chief Operating Officer
Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, Inc. is proud to announce the recent promotion of Bryan K. James to Chief Operating Officer. Bryan has served on the Executive Leadership Team since joining the company in 2011, first as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing, then as Senior Vice President.
Bryan has a combined 30 years of experience in the Firearms Industry since graduating from college in 1991. During this time, he served as Director of Training for Glock (1991-2005) and Director of Law Enforcement for Smith & Wesson (2005-2011).
Since starting at Barrett, Bryan has been an integral part of the company’s growth, through the creation of a domestic regional sales team and increasing international recognition, resulting in the recent MK22 contract for USSOCOM. In this new role he will oversee the daily activities of the Engineering, Operations, Sales, Marketing, Training and Quality departments.
Barrett President, Sam Shallenberger said “This was a logical move for us as Barrett’s recent business successes can be directly attributed to Bryan’s leadership approach with his teams. I am certain he will continue to help lead the company to our next milestone.“
