NEW BERLIN, WI--(Marketwired - Aug 29, 2016) - International Monetary Systems, Ltd. (IMS), a worldwide leader in business-to-business barter services, today announced the signing of a new franchisee, IMS Philadelphia.

IMS CEO John Strabley stated, "IMS is pleased to announce that under the direction of new franchisee Matt Hepworth, we are now entering into Greater Philadelphia. Philly is a dynamic city and IMS couldn't be better positioned with Matt at the helm. Matt has a wealth of knowledge of this industry as he operated his own eastern coast trade exchange for 18 years."

Matt Hepworth commented, "After gaining experience, making a good income and developing some fantastic contacts as a sales manager for one of the largest outdoor advertising companies in the Philadelphia region, I realized at the end of each day, I couldn't shake the thought of not being a part of the barter industry. I then decided to call John. If I'm going, All In on trade, it must be with the best and I'm proud to have the IMS logo on my banner."
