We are pleased to announce two new additions and three appointments within our leadership bench.

As part of the company’s ongoing efforts to recognize and nurture talent, Barge has welcomed Karen P.

Cosentino and Booker bring a wealth of experience and a proven track record to their respective departments, ensuring Barge remains at the forefront of its industry.

In addition to the two new additions, Barge has appointed existing officer Carrie Stokes, chief of staff, to executive vice president, and elevated both Casey Tyree, director, Private Client Center, and Chris Brown, director, Federal Client Center, as senior vice president. Each of these individuals has been an integral part of the company’s success, consistently demonstrating exceptional leadership and dedication.
