Corporate barter company opens South Florida office

Ashley Portero

Corporate barter firm Icon International, INC, a subsidiary of Omnicom Group (NYSE: OMC), is setting up shop in South Florida. Headquartered in Connecticut, the specialty financial services company opened a satellite office in Fort Lauderdale last month at 6600 North Andrews Avenue, Suite 555. Richard Upton, senior vice president of operations at Icon, said the company already does about 30% of its business in Florida, so establishing an office in the state was a logical move.
