Principle Founders Brian Hall and Andrew Federowsky, Wayne Sharpe and first employee Maree St Clair started Bartercard on the Gold Coast, Australia, in 1991. This team shared a vision for Bartercard to become the world’s largest trade exchange and a globally recognised business-to-business brand.
Bartercard now supports 30 offices in Australia and 72 globally who successfully trade on a daily basis.
It was in 1995 that Bartercard International was created to replicate the model globally. Currently Bartercard operates in eight countries; Australia, New Zealand, UK, USA, Thailand, UAE, Cyprus and South Africa with new International License enquiries daily.
