Movin' On

Dear myFICO Forums Community,


After a wonderful five years being your community manager, it’s now time for me to move on to new adventures.  My last day will be April 30th.  Your new community manager will be Sarah.


It’s been a pleasure getting to know and learn from so many of you.  I especially want to express my deep gratitude to our volunteer moderators and my colleagues at Lithium, without whom there would be no myFICO Forums.


I wish Sarah and all of you much future success, and hope to see all of you in the 800 Club!





Formerly consumer affairs manager, media spokesman and myFICO Forums community manager at FICO, I'm now freelance writing for and my own site,

Re: Movin' On

Barry, thanks for all you have done for this community, and our family. We came here with scores in the 500s over 4 yrs ago and it was the guidance and input from others, especially you Barry, that set us straight with facts and info about FICO scoring. You set us on the right path towards financial independence and a home of ourr own. And I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. We owe a debt of gratitude.
