Executive Management Team


When our founders entered the payment industry, they witnessed many unethical practices. Among them were processors who built wealth for themselves at the expense of their customers. To uphold higher ethical and moral standards, Fifth Manhattan was founded in 1998. Today, the company and its executives continue to maintain the highest standards of integrity and advocacy that empower business owners to succeed.
