About Us

Our Mission

Barker Management Consulting’s mission is to be your trusted technology adviser through superior communication and strategic planning, while we connect you with the best technical solutions and security procedures that fit your critical business needs.

What We Do

Hiring a dedicated Chief Information Officer (CIO) isn’t always realistic. But partnering with a virtual CIO is.

Barker Management Consulting functions as an extension of your own company in defining and managing the technology that makes your business run on a daily basis. We put a spotlight on security protocols and recovery procedures with the ever-growing threat of ransomware and unknown internal threats. We take a proactive approach when identifying potential issues and work with trusted vendors to ensure your technology is running crisply.
Barker Management Consulting serves the Piedmont, Northern and Central Virginia region. Our goal is to ensure you have an IT solution that appropriately fits your business goals. If your company or organization is having continued issues obtaining reliable support, you need help defining objectives, or need new strategies to streamline your operation, contact us today.
Barker Management Consulting is vendor agnostic, which means we sit on your side of the table when vetting vendors. Our job is to make sure you aren’t investing in solutions that you don’t need.
