I don’t just preach improving EBITDA, I provide merchants with the technology and tools to manage the cost of accepting credit cards while also mitigating risks, including fraud, and reducing PCI Compliance burden. Even businesses that don’t accept credit cards can benefit from streamlined payment solutions and improved cashflow.
My focus is companies with a business to business operation, with $1,000,000 plus minimum annual credit card processing, or 5,000 transactions per month of any type. I say ‘operation’ because an new card automotive dealer has a consumer business, but they also typically have a wholesale parts department. Wholesale distributors and manufacturers are key markets I work with.
My background is in marketing, and I’ve always had an interest in helping companies boost sales and profits, which creates more jobs and ultimately, increases philanthropy. I have a passion for continually educating myself and others, such as through my blog or volunteering at Jr Achievement of South Florida.
The blog section of the web site is where I share what I’ve learned, handy reference information, and information relative to what I hear in the field on a daily basis from speaking with CFO’s, accounting, and others in mid-size companies. From these customers situations, maybe you’ll recognize your situation too. Companies are NEVER identified.
While I hold the title of CEO at 3D Merchant Services, it’s really an entity for marketing and for my financial and technology partners to pay me. I’m an authorized agent representing the best of the best payment processing technology, credit card processing, and check processing companies. I present each merchant that works with me a contract directly with my financial partners so they have the security of a major industry player, and the expertise of someone not bound to a single product or idea.
I don’t have too much time, but I do have lots of ideas. I hope you enjoy, and contact me if you’re looking for an expert to help you with anything related to payments.
