PHOENIX, ARIZONA – Ray Barry, formerly NAID’s Chief Shreducation and Member Relations Officer, was recently named NAID’s Deputy Executive Director.

As the Deputy Executive Director, Barry will be responsible for supporting and expanding the NAID chapters in Canada and Europe, the Shred School program, and member relations activities.

“One of the main initiatives for the future wellbeing of the industry and NAID is international growth,” said Barry. “I am excited to take on this mission and help our existing international members and future members in Canada and Europe. I will still be responsible for member relations and training but now I’ll be able to give our international members the attention they deserve as well.”

While NAID CEO Bob Johnson will remain involved in NAID programs and international expansion, the reorganization of responsibilities will allow him to focus more attention on initiatives in the U.S. market. He will be developing a strategic plan for the association and secure destruction industry, speaking at more national and international events, contributing to publications worldwide, helping states and countries implement data destruction legislation, and promoting Downstream Data Coverage.

“Members of the NAID Executive Committee and I see this as a win-win for NAID U.S., Canada, Europe, and ANZ,” said Tom Huth, NAID President. “Ray can be more focused on specific NAID initiatives while we free up time for Bob to get back to what he does best, being the face and voice of the industry.”
