As a founding brother of Thompsons Brothers, Barry takes great pride on where the business has come from over the last 40+ years.

Barry’s ethos is ‘Communication is key’, coupled with his approachable personality, professionalism and enthusiasm; Barry creates an infectious atmosphere where clients are given great service, added value and a real person to speak to when you need them.

In April 2013, Barry was President of the Insurance Institute of Manchester, whilst also hosting and compering  Insurance events for the CII.

Proud and passionate about all things that make him happy in life… His wife (Chris), sons (Vincent and Alex), his business (Thompson Brothers), and sport (Running and Manchester City).

Barry launched “Barry’s Project 150” at his inaugaration and has pledged to raise £150,000 for The Young Oncology Unit at The Christie, where he has been made an Ambassador for his fundraising efforts. See our Charity page for more information.

This will be raised through the Manchester insurance industry, friends and family.

That’s what makes Barry tick, and as the inspirational Sally Gunnell eluded in her speech, “Always strive for the best and surround yourself with the right people and the right support.”
