Barrie McCorkle, VP of strategic partnerships, SupplyStream
SupplyStream has brought aboard several team members, including industry veteran Barrie McCorkle as VP of strategic partnerships. Responsible for developing and maintaining strategic programs for suppliers, independent reps, and industry partners, McCorkle joins SupplyStream with over 25 years of experience in the custom install channel.
Prior to his last post as director of sales & training at Inada, USA, he was director of membership for Specialty Electronics Nationwide (now HTSN). The bulk of his career was spent as cofounder and vice president at Design Audio/Video, a Colorado based hybrid AV dealer. McCorkle is an active CEDIA volunteer, currently serving with the Membership Committee; and he is most recognized for his work coauthoring the Registered Outreach Instructor (ROI) TraintheTrainer program. He actively writes content for trade publications.
“I’m extremely excited to join the SupplyStream team,” said McCorkle. “Dealers need this type of business solution and there’s nothing else in the industry that even comes close. As a former dealer I recognized instantly how much time this would save dealers and I jumped at the chance to join the team.”
In addition to McCorkle, SupplyStream adds former Integrator, SupplyStream user, and active CEDIA volunteer Ryan Thomson, along with Erin Miller, former account manager and trainer at INADA, USA, to its growing Dealer Happiness team. “We built SupplyStream for dealers,” said Josh Willits, VP Dealer Happiness. “As such, keeping our dealers happy is critical to the continued success and growth of our company. Erin and Ryan bring strong industry experience to our team; but more importantly, they bring a passion for helping dealers.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Barrie, Ryan, and Erin to our growing team. It’s been important for us to attract world class people,” said Kirk Chisholm, founder and CEO of SupplyStream. “Our team continues to be made up of almost all former dealers, and we feel that is important to best understand the needs of our customers.”
