“The payment industry is a very complex, difficult market to navigate. Consequently, it can be very painful or quite profitable. Having worked with Tom for several years in the payments landscape, it has become glaringly obvious his depth of knowledge and the extensiveness of his experience. Tom is a veritable compendium of the arcane and often subtle requirements that persist among Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, to name a few. From my perspective, there is no better individual to help guide one through this challenging environment.”
