President & CEO
Barry Payne personally grew his first venture – Adirondack Technologies Furniture Inc. – from a start-up in his basement on the Hiawatha First Nation near Peterborough, Ontario, to a nationally recognized organization.
Since then, Barry has been the driving force behind several other Adirondack Group companies, including Adirondack Information Management Inc., which he started in 2006. Eight years later, Adirondack is one of the leading Aboriginal Consulting Firms to provide professional consulting services to public and private sector clients both in the National Capital Region and across Canada.
Barry personally mandates that all Adirondack Group ventures employ First Nations people whenever and wherever they can.
