CardConnect Appoints Jason Williams as Senior Vice President of Business Development
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. (September 27, 2016) — CardConnect® (NASDAQ: CCN) today announced that Jason Williams joined the company as Senior Vice President, Business Development. In this role, Jason will build and manage CardConnect’s partner channel, with special focus on Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs) and banks.
“We’ve placed a heavy emphasis on developing scalable technology and processes that will ensure our partners’ success in a competitive and vastly changing industry,” said Angelo Grecco, Executive Vice President of Business Development at CardConnect. “Jason’s impressive track record of fostering mutually-beneficial, sustainable relationships at TSYS, makes him the perfect addition to the team and together we look forward to extending CardConnect’s reach farther than ever before.”
Prior to joining CardConnect, Jason spent 19 years with TSYS® (NYSE: TSS) during which he held numerous business development positions where he was personally responsible for adding and growing customer relationships. In his most recent role as Director of Sales for TSYS’s Acquiring Solutions division, Jason led the team responsible for client acquisition and enablement.
“I haven’t seen another payments organization with as impressive a vision and product set as CardConnect’s. While their history of rapid growth speaks for itself, I was even more impressed with the recent advances of their proprietary CardPointe platform and CoPilot partner portal,” said Williams. “The power of this technology in the hands of any forward-thinking ISO or financial institution is a huge differentiator in the ever competitive payment space.”
