Meet the team.
Barretthas worked as a business and technology consultant for over 19 years for some of the largest clients in the country including Sears, Allstate, State Farm, and Amoco Pipeline to name a few. He began his career working at Andersen Consulting (now called Accenture) where he met his wife, Mary in 1995. In 2000 he helped build Avanade (a joint venture between Microsoft and Accenture) from the ground up. He even worked with Microsoft language developers to implement the very first Enterprise .NET custom solution at Allstate. That solution was then adopted by Microsoft as their .NET reference architecture. Since then, Barrett has worked on numerous projects for multiple clients. Barrett graduated early from Lake Forest College with a BA in Business Administration and Studio Art.

Mary’s success and leadership received an acknowledgement in the book – “Return on Learning: Training for High Performance at Accenture”.
