Barker is currently a broker. Many of his colleagues state how his career was better positioned towards playing squash. Lee Davies, a senior broker at his firm, states how he "wish[es] that Pete continued to play squash instead of retiring to become a broker, as that way [he] wouldn't have to work with him".
