Barbara Allario is currently enjoying retirement in Sacramento after more than 30 years in the technology industry. Over those 30 years she started and managed the legal department and was one of the first 100 employees for a then-unknown software start-up, PeopleSoft. As the company went public and grew to thousands of employees, Barbara moved into marketing management, new program sales, and license sales. The last ten years of her career were spent with software giant Oracle in the role of Program Support Manager where she was responsible for maintaining executive relationships with several Fortune 100 companies while retaining $80,000,000 annual support revenue.
Barbara was born and raised in San Jose where her early life was spent on her family’s orchard when agriculture could still be found in Santa Clara Valley. As agriculture dwindled in the area, the family business turned to real estate investments that she and her sister now manage. Barbara remained in the Bay Area until five years ago when she felt the need for more open space and moved to Sacramento. Having played golf for many years, she became involved in several golf groups in Sacramento. After discovering the Haggin Oaks Women’s Mentoring program, she soon became a mentor. The mentoring program lead to interest and participation in Morton Golf Foundation’s fund-raising events. Barb relishes the opportunity to use her avid interest in golf to help grow the sport within communities that might not be reached without the programs that MGF supports. She is enthusiastic about being a new board member and looks forward to being an active participant helping to grow and expand of the MGF charter.
