John Barker

What is your position within your company?
I am vice president of shared services for KPost Company, Dallas.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
I got to take part in the planning and execution of the roof system on the Star, the world headquarters and indoor training complex for the Dallas Cowboys. As a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan, it was a thrill!

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
It wasn’t so much the industry but rather the company that got my attention. I was drawn to the appeal of a family-owned business that was successful in its market. I thought the people at KPost were innovative and had built something quite extraordinary—their passion is contagious.

What was your first roofing experience?
In my personal life, it was repairing the roof of my house after a storm. From a business perspective, starting my job at KPost was my first experience with commercial roofing.
