Barr, who is a self-taught developer, said his desire is to continue expanding his company’s reach by providing solutions for Fortune 500 companies and enterprise clients like AT&T, Stanley Black and Decker and Ultra Mobile. In addition, Barr is in the planning stages of launching a new cloud communications product built for inside sales reps.

The chronicle annually selects one small business owner from each of several categories to receive an award for their success and contributions locally. “It is an incredible honor to be selected as this year’s Best Minority Entrepreneur Small Business Person of Year for Atlanta,” said Barr in a statement.
