Houston, Texas Paysafe, a leading specialized payments platform, today announced that Patrick Turiano, Director of Marketing, North America, has been selected in the Electronic Transactions Association (ETA)’s annual ‘Forty Under 40’. Turiano and the class of 2020 will be formally honored at the ETA’s TRANSACT event at the Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, where Paysafe will exhibit at booth #415 from April 27th to 30th, 2020.

The Washington, D.C.-based payments industry trade association has named Paysafe leaders in the ‘Forty Under 40’ every year since its inception in 2018. The ETA’s class of 2019 included two leaders after a Paysafe Vice President was recognized in its inaugural class.

This year’s Paysafe honoree, Turiano, who has over a decade’s payments industry experience, oversees the company’s marketing strategy for its US and Canadian payment processing division. His role includes managing investments in numerous acquiring strategies and channels – from agents, independent sales organizations (ISOs), and financial institutions (FIs) to independent software vendors (ISVs), direct channels, and point of sale (POS) partners. Turiano leads a team of channel marketing managers and specialists based on the US east and west coasts. 

Prior to Paysafe’s acquisition of iPayment in 2018, Turiano served as the payment solutions provider’s Director of Marketing Communications. His previous positions include senior marketing roles at iMobile3 (acquired by TSYS in 2018) and Cayan (acquired by TSYS in 2017).

Turiano said: “The ETA’s ‘Forty Under 40’ has already recognized many payments professionals who’ve inspired me over the course of my career, so it’s truly an honor to join their number this year. My recognition also reflects the hard work and dedication of my colleagues on Paysafe’s marketing team.”

O.B. Rawls, CEO of Global Payment Processing at Paysafe, commented: “We’re delighted to see Patrick Turiano’s well-deserved recognition by the ETA. The ‘Forty Under 40’ is a benchmark of excellence for younger payments leaders, and Patrick’s inclusion in the class of 2020 indicates that we as a company remain strongly focused on the industry’s future.”
