The Inaugural Spirit of Barry Award awarded to Kemi

Barry Yudolph, Debra’s father and SAY’s credit controller sadly passed away from COVID on the 1st May 2020 at the age of 82. He disliked ‘boring’ retirement and thrived on having a purpose and therefore took a role as SAY’s credit controller. When chasing payments,  he charmed our clients, always interested in their businesses and the latest happenings. Barry showed the importance of embracing life. He will be missed by all at SAY and our clients.
