IRTA Convention News, IRTA News

David Wallach was one of the barter industry’s finest leaders and visionaries. David’s remarkable contributions to the barter industry spanned 30+ years. He served as IRTA’s President from September 2007 until March of 2011, at which time the IRTA Global Board of Directors unanimously named him President Emeritus of IRTA. David served as IRTA’s President Emeritus until his passing on May 6th, 2011.

David Wallach’s passion and love for the barter industry was unprecedented. He selflessly spent thousands of hours every year building the barter industry because he truly believed that the benefits of barter could improve the standard of living of everyone throughout the world. The very phrase “modern trade and barter industry” was created by David Wallach.

Recipients of the David Wallach Outstanding Achievement Award must exhibit the same tireless unselfish commitment to the barter industry that David Wallach modeled. This year’s recipient, Scott Whitmer, President & CEO of Florida Barter, clearly has met the lofty criteria of the David Wallach Award. Scott was also elected as Co-Vice Chairman of the IRTA Global Board this year.

IRTA congratulates Scott on receiving his much deserved 2016 David Wallach Outstanding Achievement Award!
