Dave Barr

Avid football (soccer) fan | Beekeeper | Vice President of Global Service Delivery

With more than 20 years in technology leadership, most in high-growth companies where scale is an every-day conversation, Dave thrives on challenge and change. Dave, a former Gorilla client, was attracted to Gorilla Logic by Dan Berg’s decisive and high-trust leadership style (Dave has worked with Dan in three prior roles). He also values the company’s emphasis on partnering closely with clients around shared project outcomes. Dave’s responsibilities include overseeing a delivery strategy that supports the company’s growth objectives, leading a delivery structure to inspire and scale the delivery team, and executing on the highest impact initiatives to drive company growth.

As a leader, Dave is very people-centered, using coaching, mentoring, and organization design to build a collaborative work culture where everybody feels they belong and can grow personally and professionally. He builds a right-sized operational structure to efficiently scale the business, and he draws on his deep technology background to guide the team in delivering exceptional products. For Dave, these foundations of people, process, and product are crucial to ensuring a high-performing delivery team, highly satisfied clients, and high business growth.

Dave is a father of three young adult children and lives with his family and wife on an acreage just outside of Boulder, CO. The family’s large Maine Coon cat makes sure that the mice that also live there don’t bother Dave too much (he might be a bit terrified of mice). Dave grew up in Scotland, just 23 miles from the birthplace of golf, a sport he recently took up to add to his regular running routine. He’s a huge fan of football (of the soccer kind) and an avid supporter of his Scottish hometown club, the Dunfermline Athletic. Dave, who is a passionate lifelong learner, recently became a beekeeper, with three active hives to date. And, when he has time, he loves to cook, especially Indian food.
