Gary Allman writes for the Barefoot Businessman and is co-owner and manager of Davis-Allman Business Development. He has spent over twenty-five years managing small and medium-sized businesses engaged in providing business services to large corporations.

Gary also works part time as Director of Communications for a diocese of The Episcopal Church.

He has a broad range of managerial, project management, program management, and service delivery experience gained in media production, financial services, IT services, manufacturing, public utilities, defense and higher education.

His primary roles have been in senior management, reporting at board level, with responsibility for strategic guidance, sales support, product and service delivery. Gary’s specialist areas are defining business solutions, program, project and supplier management.

However, more recently he has worked extensively on web-based business development, delivery, communications and marketing. 

Originally from Hampshire on the South Coast of England, Gary emigrated to the US in 2008. Gary lives in Springfield, Missouri with his wife Ginger, one remaining home-based teenager (two have fled the nest) and four cats. He also has two grown sons living in the UK.

When he’s not working, you’ll find Gary hiking, backpacking, camping, kayaking, taking photographs, or vacuuming cat fur out of his computer.
