As Founder and CEO, Michael Nardy has elevated Electronic Payments' reputation as one of the most respectable acquirers and transaction processing companies in the nation. Recognized as an industry leader, Michael was exposed to entrepreneurship at a young age. While completing a dual degree at Boston College, he founded Electronic Payments. Intrigued by the high demand for payment and transaction processing services, he decided to raise the bar in the merchant services marketplace and moved the company to his home town in Long Island, New York upon graduation.
As the industry evolved, Michael expanded the company's focus to accommodate its rapid growth. Since the company's incorporation, he has realized four office expansions, established an unparalleled staff of over 80 in-house employees, a network of 800 agents nationwide, and a portfolio of propriety products and services. Michael's success, dedication and contributions to the industry have earned him the honor of being named "Industry Leader" by the Green Sheet and one of "America's Coolest Young Entrepreneurs under 30" by Inc. magazine. He was also nominated as a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year® 2011 New York award.
