"JetPay has been a well-kept secret in the processing industry," stated Compton. "They have amazing functionality and a very innovative technology team. I joined JetPay because of their tremendous opportunity to grow and to have the chance to lead that effort." Paul continued, "Having been part of the Heartland growth story was exciting, and I believe that working with JetPay I can help to replicate or exceed that."
