Building a Foundation on Corporate Culture
November 2012 Middle Market Company of the Month
You’ve probably slipped your feet into a pair of Dearfoams® a time or two. But you may not know that these cushiony, comfy slippers are made by a leading middle market company.
Based in Ohio, RG Barry Corporation develops and markets footwear and fashion accessories, including the popular Dearfoams®, Foot Petals®, and Baggallini™ brands. The company focuses on solution-oriented products that ‘make life better’ and sells its wares through multiple channels.
In addition to its products, the company’s recent success makes it a notable middle market firm. From fiscal year 2007 to 2011, while other companies battled the recession, RG Barry reported its most profitable five-year period in the company’s 64-year history, thanks in large part to its unique and engaging corporate culture.
Despite the challenging economy, President and CEO Greg Tunney led RG Barry to stellar results through a combination of strong management culture and exceptional talent management—two of the five key characteristics exhibited by the top 9% of middle market firms, or Middle Market Growth Champions.
