Barrows, Inc. has two exciting announcements to make regarding their talented team!
Jack Orsinger has been welcomed to Barrows as their new General Manager. Jack has ten years of experience working in sales operations in the health insurance industry. Most recently, he worked as the Division Vice President for Health Care Service Corp where his focus was on business process optimization and sales infrastructure support. There, Jack was the business owner and lead for the implementation of a Salesforce CRM to support the deployment of a 1,500-person sales contact center. He is eager to use his experience to benefit customers in the Roanoke area.
“I’m excited to be joining a dynamic and growing company like Barrows,” said Orsinger. “I’ve experienced first-hand the transformation of business workspaces and the positive impact it can have on worker morale and productivity. It’s thrilling to work for a company that can have such a positive impact for employees, staff, and students in the corporate, healthcare, and education environments. I’m looking forward to helping Barrows continue its growth trend and help facilitate the expansion of its business footprint!”
Jerry Helms, who has been with Barrows for nine years as a lead installer, has been promoted to Project Manager. Prior to his work at Barrows, Jerry was the owner/operator of Bare Wood, a furniture retailer with two locations each spanning 10,000 square feet. His experience within the company has proven his worth to both the customers and to Barrows itself.
“It’s an honor to continue building my career with Barrows,” said Helms. “After nearly a decade of working with this company, I can honestly say I have never seen our dedication to our customers waver in any way. I’m proud of how we treat our customers and the work we do for them. I’m excited to continue that trend in my new role as project manager.”

The Active Learning Classroom Grant is worth $67,000 and provides new furniture, workspaces and technologies for schools and universities chosen across the nation. Barrows works as a vendor for Steelcase and the companies partner together on multiple education-related projects each year.
