John Barry Takes CEO Reins at Wings

January 1, 2017: Culminating many months of careful succession planning, Major General (ret) John Barry assumed leadership of Wings Over the Rockies as President & CEO.  He succeeded Greg Anderson, who will remain on a part-time basis with Wings as Executive Director of the Wingspan Campaign for the Exploration of Flight center at Centennial.  General Barry brings great assets to the Wings team from an illustrious Air Force career, as well as nonprofit work as Superintendent of Aurora Public Schools for seven years and CEO of the Denver Metro Boys and Girls Club for three.  He also served on the Wings Board of Directors for eight years, including two as Board Chair.  Barry and Anderson are aligned in Wings purpose and priorities, and Wings can look for great things to happen under John’s distinguished leadership.  A special “Above and Beyond” recognition event for both was scheduled for February.
