Barry Shrier was the founder and CEO, then Chairman of The Liberty Electric Cars group of companies. Barry launched the business, recruited a senior management team; designed, built and launched the world's first zero-emission high performance SUV; and grew Liberty into a multi-million business with global blue-chip customers including UPS, Lockheed Martin, Tescos, FedEx, McLaren and the British Government. In June 2012 he sold it to Green Automotive (OTC:GACR) with a stock market valuation in excess of $100M, resulting in the founding investors earning over 90% compound annual growth.

Barry also founded The Electric Automobile Association (EAA), bringing together zero emission technology suppliers, manufacturers and others to facilitate networking and the exchange of ideas. Previously, Barry founded the Liberty Europe Network, focusing on Wireless Internet expansion throughout the EU, and has also served as a Director of the Washington DC-based satellite venture LeoTerra, created to launch a new constellation of low earth orbit satellites to deliver global, mobile broadband for the first time in history.

In 2001, Barry was hired by Deutsche Bank to launch Paybox, the world's first international mobile payment system. Barry was Managing Director for the UK and European spokesman for Paybox and a leading speaker on mobile commerce.

Prior to Deutsche Bank, Barry worked for several strategic marketing consultancies where he developed his expertise in the application of cognitive psychology to understand consumer behaviour. He managed various international projects for Unilever, Guinness, Procter & Gamble, Mars and Nestle.
