I carry 10 years in the merchant industry starting in Loss Prevention then growing into Director roles for Crescent Processing and Future Payment Technologies, leading local merchant processing companies. I then took on global merchant responsibilities as a full Payment Professional with McAfee and Intel. As a credit, risk, and fraud expert, I love the chase! And speaking of chase, if you’re looking for me at a conference, I’ll be the one stalking the hors d’oeuvres.
Notes from Christine There is a fairness and equity in commerce. There are rules for processing items correctly and ways to catch people who are violating those rules. Whether they are hackers, testers, fraudsters, or employees, I can find/prevent/isolate them. They are violating the spirit of payment processing and making life difficult for everyone. For this, they will be stopped. And I am just stubborn and skilled enough to do it.
Payment Professional, Consultant, Co-Founder
You name it, I’ve fixed it (I used to say I’d broken everything and that’s how I learned how to fix it…But now I’m a Consultant!)
Bachelor’s Degree – Business, Governor’s State University
Master’s Degree – Business Administration, Western Governor’s University
I have over 30 years’ professional experience with both the largest US eCommerce Acquirer and as the payment professional for two of the strongest companies in the world. As a leader at Chase Paymentech for 13 years, then a Senior Business Manager of payments for AT&T for 9 years, I was most recently employed as the payments expert for McAfee and Intel where I grew online global payments by millions of dollars. Domestic? Check! International? Check! PCI? SOX? PII? Check!
Notes from Sally I’ve tinkered with almost everything in the last 3 decades. I started when merchants sent signed tickets via bicycle courier to have them key entered. I recall when ‘knuckle-busters’ were the greatest. Now, we have international e-wallets funded by cash machines and biometric ID methods. I keep saying that I don’t need to change jobs because the Payments Industry changes my job for me every day. I’ve always been excited about payments and the variability in the payments ecosystem. Now I would like to leverage my knowledge and experience for you.
I’ll be out and about at conferences and customer sites. Please know that if you lose me, I’ll be by the coffee pot – wherever that is. Talk soon!
