"In any given week, I may help structure strategic business alliances, consult as a payments expert, or deliver innovative business solutions." 

My first year at GlobalCollect has been an extraordinary ride and I’m amazed at how much I’ve learned and accomplished so far. I’ve been able to complement my overall knowledge of the payments industry and become a better sales professional, while working in an environment that constantly challenges me to try new approaches and come up with out of the box solutions.

Before joining GlobalCollect, I had acquired over 15 years of experience across multiple areas of the payments industry value chain and I had many diverse career experiences. I’ve worked at a major credit card company and at a fledging start-up company. I’ve managed sales teams across different geographies, helped implement and integrate technological solutions, and worked within cross-functional teams, to deliver new products to demanding customers. I’ve always sought to work within fast-paced environments, and I was looking for that type of excitement when I found GlobalCollect.

From the beginning, I was really impressed with the energy and knowledge of the GlobalCollect team. It is clear that the company is a global leader in their domain and very customer-focused. I wanted to be a part of their growth ambitions and success story. Once I joined, I immediately felt embraced and it seemed like a natural fit.

There is always a new challenge at GlobalCollect. In any given week, I may help structure strategic business alliances, consult as a payments expert, or deliver innovative business solutions. One day I may be dealing with a start-up company and the next day I may get to meet the CEO of a major corporation. I enjoy not knowing what the next day will bring. And most importantly, I love working at a company that has preserved its start-up mentality while evolving into a part of a larger group. I’m energized by the can-do culture, where thinking big is encouraged and talented colleagues thrive.
