Bartlett brings 30 years of experience to the role, where she will be responsible for ensuring JUSTLY complies with FINRA-mandated laws and regulations while serving the interests of investors who want to make a difference through private equity.

She has vast experience in key aspects of the job including the review of outside business activity analyses, private securities transactions, hosting regulatory and internal audits, and the development, execution and ongoing maintenance of policies and procedures to ensure the highest standards of compliance and regulatory requirements.
"Crowdfunding is the future of business investments and being a part of the modernization of financial services is an exciting aspect of the role," said Bartlett. "With many firms moving into the FinTech arena, JUSTLY's niche offering of a transparent equity crowdfunding program for companies compliant with ESG principles will help shape the future of our planet. I look forward to working with JUSTLY's team of driven, socially conscious, and innovative professionals and will focus on striking a balance between strong growth and ensuring a solid compliance program to ensure we remain in good standing with our regulators and offer our investors the best possible opportunities."
