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.

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. Because of Barry’s original vision, and through the support and leadership of the current owner, Chad Dean, Integrated Management has made some of the most successful Risk Management placements on Wall Street, along with model developers, quant developers and model validators.
