ATLANTA (August 23, 2011) Tradebank of the Triad has opened to introduce area businesses to the benefits of barter. John Faircloth has been appointed to run the barter business as a regional owner and will build clientele in the Triad region. Faircloth shares ownership in the region with Charlotte-based Sindo Mayor who will help manage the area’s growth to complement Mayor’s successful Tradebank of Charlotte franchise. The overall goal: to become the barter industry leader in the state of North Carolina.

“I am truly excited about barter and am delighted to introduce a concept to business owners that will save cash and increase their bottom line,” stated Faircloth, a native of Winston-Salem and graduate of Guilford College in Greensboro. “Businesses need all the help they can get in this economy, and I believe barter provides a competitive advantage and is a smart step for business growth.”

Faircloth will work closely with the business communities in the Triad. He has more than 20 years of sales and service experience within the financial industry. Prior to joining Tradebank, Faircloth owned an investment company for several years and also worked as an investment banker with one of the nation’s largest financial institutions responsible for selling investment products to corporations and individuals.

“John and Sindo will do a fantastic job in building a thriving barter economy in North Carolina,” remarked Todd Gerry, president of Tradebank of International Franchising Corporation. “Both are service-oriented individuals with a passion for helping others.”
