Heartland Payment Systems, a leader in the payments processing industry, today announced Brooks Terrell will be stepping down from his post as chief technology officer to pursue other interests.
He will remain onboard with Heartland until August 31, 2007 to ensure a smooth transition.
"When Brooks joined us at the very start of our company 10 years ago, he had several missions," said Bob Carr, chairman and CEO. "Two of the most significant were to develop proprietary front-end and back-end processing platforms for Heartland. Now that Exchange, our front end, has operated with no downtime or significant issues for the past 20 months, and Passport, our back end, has functioned successfully for more than a year, Brooks has decided to move on to pursue other personal interests."
In addition to his many accomplishments at Heartland, Brooks built a technology organization of talented innovators dedicated to operational excellence. Today, the team is focused on building new systems and functional enhancements that will support the business for the next 10 years and beyond.
"We have not yet named a replacement to Brooks' post," Carr concluded. "In the meantime, Brooks will focus on transitioning his responsibilities within the organization. Brooks' direct reports will temporarily report to me after he leaves at the end of August."
