Florida Barter�s Bingman Crowned Broker Of The Year

Joyce Bingman, a Certified Trade Broker and travel broker for Florida Barter in Winter Park, has been named the National Association of Trade Exchanges� 2006 Broker of the Year. She will be honored during an awards banquet in conjunction with NATE�s annual convention, to be held in Toronto August 10-12.

�It is such a humbling honor to be recognized by one's peers,� Bingman expressed. �An award such as this makes the exacting clients and challenging days seem insignificant. Working for Florida Barter, and having (founder) Scott Whitmer as my mentor, has definitely given me the edge in learning strong leadership, fair business ethics, and the knowledge of bartering.�

Bingman, who has been with Florida Barter for nearly 12 years, manages the travel department and handles all of the reciprocal trading business. During her tenure there, the travel department has regularly produced yearly record growth. Her presence has been instrumental in helping the trade exchange consistently rank as a top producer in the barter industry.

�Travel is not necessarily the most profitable side of bartering. However, it spreads the most enjoyment and goodwill while building memorable moments with clients,� Bingman said. �We travel brokers have all the best.�
