Barton Advances to Senior V.P., Controller at AmericasMart

ATLANTA-Michelle Barton has been named senior vice president and controller at AmericasMart Atlanta in a promotion elevating her role within the company's financial operations and emerging business growth strategies, according to Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., president and chief operating officer of AmericasMart Atlanta and its AMC, Inc., parent entity.

Barton's promotion follows her 14-year tenure at AMC, most recently as vice president and controller. She joins the AMC executive management team and its direction of all strategic and operational developments across all business lines.  Barton will lead AMC finance and accounting functions, including the management of lease administration and collections, and will continue to work with the financial community under the leadership of Jack Ryan, who has been named acting chief financial officer.

"The financial integrity and accountabilities we enjoy today are due in large measure to Michelle Barton's admirable work ethic and impeccable stewardship of AMC resources," Portman said.  "Her role in our continuing progress, particularly in the context of a challenging business environment, is inestimable."
