Meet the Team: Brian Barry

by Brian Barry

About Me

What’s up, folks? If you’re reading this, you’re probably somewhat like me: a diehard, lunatic Sox fan. However, that’s just a small part of me. I’m a 25-year-old fan of movies, music, good food, traveling, and craft beer. I’m a firm believer in treating others how you’d like to be treated and that strong relationships get us through this thing we call life.

I grew up on the southwest side of Chicago, graduated from Marist High School in 2015 (played basketball and volleyball), then graduated from Xavier University in 2019. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from the Williams College of Business and absolutely loved my time at Xavier in the Cincinnati area. Currently, I’m working for Experian in Sales and Account Management. Although it’s often a struggle, I truly enjoy being a part of the White Sox fan community.
