Barry Franklin founded Integrated Management Resources in 1990, with the focus of building a Financial Capital Markets and Executive Search firm that would specialize on Wall Street recruiting. In the beginning, Barry worked hard, as the company’s only recruiter, to build the brand name and the integrity and professionalism that is associated with Integrated Management Resources. Being born and raised virtually alone in Manhattan, Barry developed an extremely strong work ethic and a tremendous desire to be successful through hard work and dedication.
He worked extensively with Managing Directors of Foreign Exchange, Equity, and Fixed Income groups who were responsible for making markets in Cash, Options, and Derivative Products. More recently, Barry specializes in placing quantitative modelers, quantitative strategists, Structurers, and Traders.
