Taylor Barnes: Rerouting For Success

Oct 22, 11:00 AM
On this weeks episode of Culturation™ we speak with the Sales Servant, Taylor Barnes. We discuss how your past doesn't dictate your future, finding fulfillment by helping others and pivoting your business with the progression of technology and trends. 

Taylor is Vice President of Global Business Development and a founding partner at CentricsIT. Barnes co-founded CentricsIT in 2007 and has since helped the organization become one of the fastest-growing companies in Georgia and one of the top IT Solution Providers in North America. He currently manages business development for the services side of the organization, responsible for charting and maintaining an aggressive revenue growth plan. CentricsIT services revenue has grown by 400% since Barnes assumed sales leadership responsibility over the segment in 2014. 

Barnes was in his early twenties when he formed CentricsIT with his partners. His first role at the organization was as an IBM product specialist, brokering secondary market IBM equipment around the world. From there, he cut his teeth in the IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) space, creating the company's ITAD practice, which would mark the beginning of the organization's successful transition from an IT hardware reseller to a global, comprehensive IT solutions provider. 

He moved into his current role in 2014, first as Director before his promotion to Vice President in 2017. Barnes's company, CentricsIT, is one of the top global exporters in Georgia, with offices in Toronto, Dubai, London, and Prague and additional presence in more than 80 countries. 

The company has received the GLOBE award, which honors its contributions to the state's global trade, from Governor Nathan Deal each year since 2013. Barnes is a road warrior, frequently travelling around the world to further develop the company's business worldwide. 

Husband to Brittany and father to Kellar and Cyrus, he is active in the community and, alongside his wife Brittany, donates time, money and resources to multiple causes close to his heart.
