Career History

1988 - Current

38 million times each day, the people of TSYS® improve lives and businesses across the world by processing a payment. We make it possible for millions of people to move money between the world's buyers and sellers. Offering merchant payment-acceptance solutions as well as services in credit, debit, prepaid, mobile, chip, healthcare and more, we make it possible for those in the global marketplace to conduct safe and secure electronic transactions with trust and convenience. TSYS' headquarters are located in Columbus, Georgia, U.S.A. with local offices spread across the Americas, EMEA and Asia–Pacific. TSYS provides services to more than half of the top-20 global banks. In a bygone era, general store merchants greeted their customers by name and spent a minute or two in conversation before processing the transaction, which was a simple exchange of merchandise for cash. As customers selected their products, the merchants learned their preferences – both benefiting from the relationship. Since then, transactions have evolved dramatically. Technology has extended the reach, scale and velocity of every transaction in the global payment chain. In this complex process, it's easy to lose sight of that basic relationship. At TSYS (Total System Services, Inc.®), we believe it's possible to create more value in those relationships than ever before. That's because we believe that payments should revolve around people, not the other way around.
