About Barry Bazen:

Barry has been in sales and management positions in the Office Products and Telecommunications industries for over 20 years. After graduating from Clemson University in 1987, Barry began his sales career with Lanier and was quickly promoted to Sales Manager over South Carolina, where his team established Regional Sales records. Barry then moved into the Telecommunications field when he joined Bell South Mobility. After a successful tenure at Bell South, Barry moved into the Charlotte, NC market with Global Crossing and became General Manager of the state. After his experience at Global Crossing, Barry joined MCI as the Director of National and Major Account Sales and Service for both North and South Carolina, as well as Virginia and West Virginia. It was the knowledge attained in this role that fostered the idea of starting a credit recovery firm, and Barry founded MBA Technology Consultants, with a focus solely on telecom expenses. With the addition of Partner, Ken Reda, in 2005, Profit Advisory Group was founded, encompassing multiple service lines, in the addition to telecom.  Barry earned a B.S. in Economics from Clemson University.
