Hilda Salerno

Trade Manager


Hilda joined the Itex team in March of 2020 as a Trade Director.  Although new to barter, Hilda possesses the understanding of how to maintain and deepen business relations from her extensive thirty plus year career as a  Business Banking Sales Director. Having been a national top producer and a member of the JP Morgan Hall of Fame, Hilda possesses the skills and mind -set of fully understanding the everyday need of business owners.  Her Itex approach consists of  listening to her client needs and making sound recommendations tailored to their business.  This includes  creating long lasting relations while being able to provide consistent, valuable service. Besides being  the Trade Manager, her responsibility also includes managing the Itex Fairfield CT Headquarter Office,  training and mentoring new incoming Trade Directors, Sales Representatives and Barter Consultants.

Aside form barter, Hilda enjoys reading, writing, music, art, antiques, numismatics and travel. Hilda is happily married to her husband Eddie for 34 years and loves and cherishes family, friends and most importantly her beloved animal rescue family- 3 dogs names ZoZo, Chloe and Lily and her kitties, Tina, Leo, Herbie and Amy.  She is also the caretaker of her neighborhood feral cats named, Tobey, Coco, Shiley, Obbee, Bobster, Houdini, Crystal, Sandra and Indie. It is safe to say Hilda loves animals having devoted her entire life to saving and ongoing caring of rescues. 

Hilda is currently finishing up her studies needed for her BA majoring in International Business and successfully achieved her Minor in Economics. She was fortunate  to have also studied in Italy for 3 years Florentine Renaissance Art.
