Jackie Ferlita

Director of Emissions and Greenhouse Gases, Element Markets

By Elaine Murphy & Sarah VaughnPublished: May 01, 2012

Since opening Element Markets’ western office in 2010, Jackie Ferlita has conducted over $100 million in environmental commodities and natural gas business in California, a figure that Ferlita hopes will some day represent her annual trade sales. In 2011 alone, she sold an impressive $5.5 million in greenhouse gas credits, renewable energy credits and emissions-reduction credits, and she is currently developing a management program for California’s future cap-and-trade program.
   
Ferlita says her first taste of success came when she closed her first deal. “I wanted to do cartwheels across the trading room floor,” she says. “I realized that there is money to be made and success to be had out there, and all it takes is a lot of hard work to do it.”
   
For Ferlita, new shoes are an incentive to strive for success – she recently received a new pair as a bonus upon signing a new deal. elementmarkets.com

Best business advice: “Be political in organizations.”
