New American Home Shield president sees big potential

Seeing excellent potential for growth in the home warranty industry, Mark Barry recently took reins as president of American Home Shield, the No. 1 provider of that service in the U.S.

American Home Shield and Barry’s success are strongly tied to the Carroll area’s economic health since the company, which opened a service center here 25 years ago, is one of the community’s largest employers. American Home Shield, a subsidiary of ServiceMaster, employs nearly 1,600 people at service centers in Carroll, LaGrange, Ga., and Memphis. Tenn. Carroll employs a peak of about 450-460 during the busy summer air conditioning season. LaGrange employs approximately 400 and Memphis 600.

Barry most recently served as president of United Technologies’ Automation and Control Solutions, a $3.2 billion Hartford, Conn.-based unit of UTC’s climate, control and security business. He previously served as president of GE Security-Americas before it was acquired by UTC in 2010.
