Barry Yager, director
Barry has worked in financial services for over 30 years. He has spent his career developing game changing technological solutions for financial institutions.
Barry had already successfully grown and sold two IT solutions focused companies before setting up BEP, the most recent of which was SDS Applications, one of the first suppliers to introduce the use of the Internet into mortgage and lending systems. These ideas are now commonplace but SDS was among the pioneers in this area. The growth and innovation of the company led to its sale to BancTec in 2005, where Barry still works as a consultant
Prior to SDS, Barry grew and sold Chess Valley Computers Ltd (CVC). Barry developed CVC from a small software house into a position of market strength, resulting in the successful sale to Lynx Financial Systems in 1994. CVC was one of the early adopters and developers of workflow tools and pioneered its practical use in mortgage processing. After the sale Barry continued to work at Lynx and was instrumental in the rapid growth of Lynx’s customer base, winning new, multi-million pound orders and helping the business expand into new areas.
