Lorraine Barnes – President and CEO of LRB Business Centers

Lorraine Barnes started as a receptionist in a small executive office leasing business in Alexandria VA 25 years ago. Using wits, intuition and the blessings of the Lord she learned the operations of a Center and started a Center on Eisenhower Avenue in 1990. Though business has not always been easy, Lorraine preserved and today LRB Business Centers is a leader in Alexandria’s executive offices and virtual receptionist service.

Lorraine’s hard work is a reflection on her company. She trains each staff member to her standards of quality, speed, and professionalism. Everything from the large, 20 foot maple conference table to the premium cream gloss coating on the floorboards were hand selected with her careful consideration of client needs, wants, and recommendations. She personally meets with her clients daily and can be seen moving around the main lobbies of her centers to assure everything is up to her code.

Lorraine is a member of the Alexandria Chamber of CommerceNorthern Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce, and Cameron Breakfast BNI.

This is what LRB Business Center’s clients are saying about Lorraine, her company and her staff!
  • Call Lorraine! I called Lorraine when I was getting so much business I needed additional support. One call and she set me up with live answer support…. Now, I can concentrate on design and I don’t have to worry that my clients and potential clients are being handled in a professional manner. A few weeks later, I realized I should have LRB Business Centers scheduling all my appointments not just initial consultations. When I needed a new bookkeeper I looked to her for that recommendation, as she has in house. They ARE my back office and I highly recommend them to others that are juggling too many admin tasks to focus on income producing activities.

  • Lorraine and her staff have provided wonderful on-site office and administrative support to my firm for nearly a decade. She is extremely conscientious and dedicated to her clients. I would recommend her services to any business colleague.

  • LRB Business Centers provides excellent services and know-how to my small business. Lorraine is personable and commands from her staff a level of excellence rarely seen in a small business center. My business has grown exponentially as a result. I have and will continue to recommend her to any business in need of support, a location, and/or business services.
