Barbara “Barb” Dye isn’t a know-it-all. She just knows it all—or at least she does when it comes to KDC. “I always joke that I consider myself the Help Desk of KDC.”
Barb’s extensive knowledge comes from experience. She has been with KDC since 1999, and during her tenure, she’s witnessed the company’s tremendous growth from just 16 people to more than 60.
As Office Manager and Executive Assistant to the CEO & President, Barb has helped shape KDC into the organization it is today. She manages the day-to-day office operations of the company’s corporate office in Dallas including all office services and vendor contracts, equipment leases, company records retention program, and corporate travel services. While Barb supervises a small team of administrative assistants, she also provides leadership to all the administrative assistants.
“Our admins are amazing,” Barb raves.
We work closely together and function smoothly as a team. There's always someone who's willing to step up, and we all contribute ideas that help us work smarter and better.
Prior to joining KDC, Barb spent 19 years at Lone Star Steel. Though she enjoyed her administrative and accounting positions in the beginning, she always longed to work with executives where she ended up in her later years. “My aunt worked for the CEO of Southland Corporation, which owned 7-Elevens, and she was a good role model for me,” Barb explains.
Barb attended Dallas County Community Colleges, as well as the Executive Secretarial School in the 80’s.
Though Barb was born in Florida, she’s lived in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex most of her life. She and her husband, Scott, enjoy hunting and fishing with the family. Together, they spend their winters hunting and their summers on the lake.
Barb also enjoys spending time with her four children and two grandchildren. She has three sons and one daughter who’ve blessed her with a granddaughter and a grandson.
Barb exercises her creativeness during some of her spare time by making jewelry, sewing, and cooking.
