Vice President

River Barker

River fell in love with the moving industry the moment he joined. We asked him what his favorite thing about Carolina Moving and Storage was, and this was his response: “I grew up with parents that instilled in me a lot of morals and values to try to live by to be successful in life. When I got the opportunity here, I learned that they truly believe in those same ideals, which was a massive part of their success. It’s simple:

Work hard, take pride in your work, be honest, have integrity in what you do, do what you say you are going to do/when you say you are going to do it, and do right by our clients. My daily goal is to go home knowing I did the right thing. This is the best company and opportunity to be a part of, and I will forever be grateful for it”.

River is the father of 3 exceptional children: River Jr (5yrs. old), Kinsley (3 yrs. old), and Crew (1 yrs. old). A big part of River’s life is finding different organizations to volunteer at throughout the triangle in his spare time. He believes he has truly been blessed in life and tries to pass that on through service to others.
