Expertise

I can answer questions from business owners on how to reduce risk and cost when accepting any form of electronic payments. The Credit Card Processing industry is immense and many business owners simply do not understand how they are being billed. I have contributed to the conversion, re-engineering, set-up and integration of the credit card acceptance methods for over 1,000 clients. For almost 9 years I have seen the rise and fall of thousands of businesses of all shapes and sizes. I have knowledge and information on how to set up and run many different types of companies.

Experience in the area

For almost 9 years, I have helped CFO's, Accountants, and Office Managers make sense of their credit card processing programs. I've worked as an electronic payments consultant for a New Jersey commercial bank. I coordinated the National Training department for a private processing firm. Currently, I am overseeing the development of a multi-tiered consultative sales force.
