Seasoned Payments Executive & Investor Will Help Steer Processor’s Growth.
Clayton, MO, July 30, 2015 –(PR.com)– Clearent, one of the fastest growing payment processing companies in the U.S., today announced that Dan Henry, an experienced and successful payments entrepreneur will be joining the company’s board of directors. Dan has built and operated two successful payments companies, both of which became publicly traded and exceeded $1 billion in market capitalization.
Most recently Dan was the CEO of NetSpend, a company whose mission is to empower consumers with the convenience, security, and freedom to be self-banked. By diversifying NetSpend’s business into different markets and increasing its focus on growing direct deposit accounts, Dan was able to triple the company’s revenue and customer base before selling it to the TSYS Corporation for $1.4 billion. Prior to joining NetSpend, Dan co-founded Euronet Worldwide, a global leader in processing secure electronic financial transactions. When Dan departed the company in 2006, Euronet’s annual revenue was in excess of $600 million and the company operated 26 offices in 23 countries.
Dan’s success in scaling payments companies will be a valuable asset as Clearent continues to grow. This year, Clearent celebrates its 10th anniversary and the company continues to leverage the benefits of its proprietary processing platform.
