Momentum continues for Carbon Trade Exchange

After a record breaking year in 2014, Carbon Trade Exchange (CTX) is also starting 2015 with a bang, becoming a signatory of the Caring for Climate initiative and announcing the key appointment of Lee Barton as Business Systems Manager, following a review of back office operations.

Lee will start immediately, bringing extensive experience in the exchange industry, having implemented and driven a wide range of business-critical initiatives and programmes.

Prior to joining CTX, Lee worked within the Bartercard Group for over 17 years in Business Administration, Management and Technology roles, with ten of those as the Executive Administration Manager and Director of Bartercard in London, followed by her most recent role in Australia as Senior Manager, where she assisted with the IPO of BPS Technology Ltd on the ASX. Lee will be responsible for implementing and managing business systems and projects for CTX across multiple regions and markets.

Baden Wright, CTX CEO said “Our record result is testament to the amazing team we have in place, and in that regard I offer a warm welcome to Lee whose experience in the exchange industry will be invaluable.”

Wayne Sharpe, CTX Chairman and Founder added “Having worked with Lee at Bartercard, I know very well the impact she will have at CTX to further enhance and streamline our systems and processes. I warmly welcome Lee to the business and congratulate the global team for their efforts and successes in 2014”.

2015 is set to be another big year for CTX, with strategic growth and expansion plans underway for a number of markets and regions, including the USA and Europe.

CTX has strategic relationships with APX Environmental Registry and the major voluntary carbon standards including Gold Standard, VCS, Climate Action Reserve and American Carbon Registry.
