Barter Clients Love How Two Long-Term Trade Coordinators Help Them Succeed

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said. They will forget what you did. But they will never forget how you made them feel.”

These famous words spoken by celebrated American author, poet, and civil rights activist Maya Angelou offer important insight into how to treat others, both personally and professionally. At The Barter Company, we take pride in helping clients prosper and have the best, most beneficial experience in the barter industry. We love to hear how we are serving their needs and making them feel special as they explore and take advantage of barter options. We are especially grateful when they take the time to acknowledge how our hard-working employees helped them achieve their business goals.

 

Two of our team members, Tammy Stinnett and Paula Doricchi, have worked for a combined 38 years to serve clients and regularly get accolades and kudos. Here’s a sampling of what clients have said:

  • “I love my trade coordinator Paula. She is the best.”
  • “Tammy and Paula are amazing!”
  • “I enjoy working with Tammy Stinnett. She is very responsive and helpful. She is the #1 reason we stay involved with barter.”
  • “Your best asset is by far… Tammy!!”
  • “Paula, our agent, and the rest of the team are great!”

Ric Zampatti, owner of The Barter Company, agrees. “Paula and Tammy are rock stars! They get to know their clients’ businesses and scout trade opportunities based on their specific needs and goals. They then assist with the trades as well as promotions. They are an essential part of how we deliver on our promise to help clients succeed and have the best barter experience.”

Tammy joined The Barter Company in 1997, a year after the company was founded. Since then, she has worked in many key roles, always focused on making clients feel valued in their barter experience. Today, Tammy serves as a senior trade coordinator and travel manager, advising clients about trade opportunities and coordinating travel options. Outside of work, she enjoys working out, loves Italian food, and secretly wishes to be one of the office cats who receive attention and pampering all day.

Paula joined the company in 2005 and has served in many capacities since then. Prior to joining the company, she was a barter client for seven years which gave her first-hand knowledge of what clients need as they evaluate barter options and trades. Today, she is a senior trade coordinator who advises and assists clients with all aspects of their barter experience. When not working at The Barter Company, she relishes time with her husband, two daughters, three grandsons, and dog Lady.

Both Tammy and Paula personify the company’s goal of providing clients with an excellent trading experience that makes them feel valued and helps them reach their organization’s goals.
