Meet: Barry Cahoon
Barry Cahoon is our Material Handling Specialist who works out of our Omaha Branch. Barry’s work history is somewhat unique compared to others, because he has just returned to MH Equipment (welcome back, Barry!). So far, he’s been back at MH for about a week (and worked here about 3 years previous to his departure), but he’s been in the material handling field for a long time. “I was with another forklift dealer for two years after I left MH Equipment. It took me two years o come to my senses!” says Barry.
According to our seasoned MH Specialist, his specialties are working with customers and turning them into partners.
Getting more personal, Barry says he’s been happily married for 29 years (at least that’s what his wife tells him, he says). He has two children. His son just had a baby girl this year and made Barry a grandpa. Barry’s daughter is entering her senior year of high school next year. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing and hunting. He also watches the Red Green Show (which, according to PBS is a hilarious insight to men, their dreams and their obsessions for those who aren’t familiar). His favorite food is simple: beef. Barry claims that he doesn’t have a favorite sports team, as the only sports he follows is whichever one his daughter is playing at the time. We also asked Barry which person in history he would like to have dinner with, and he answered John Candy. He said he thinks it would be a blast and that they look alike!
Overall, Barry says the thing he likes most about working for MH is the people. “It has been great coming back!” he says.
We’re glad to have you back, Barry!← Back
