DALLAS – Oct. 24, 2022 – Highline Technologies, the payments fintech that unlocks payroll-linked lending and billpay, announced it has officially joined the American Transaction Processors Coalition (ATPC).
The Atlanta-based ATPC works through government affairs activities and public relations initiatives to promote and protect the payments industry. Highline will lend its voice and efforts in supporting ATPC’s ongoing work with fellow member companies, community leaders and government officials to raise the profile of the payments processing space, promoting innovation and spurring growth.
“We are excited to have Highline join the ATPC team. They bring a unique perspective and expertise that is critical when educating legislators about the essential role the payments processing ecosystem plays in empowering consumers and small businesses to succeed in an increasingly digital economy,” said ATPC Executive Director West Richards. “The ATPC convenes players in the payments ecosystem to share best practices on issues like cybersecurity, privacy, and financial inclusion and we look forward to Highline’s fresh insights.”
Last month, Highline CEO Geoff Brown met with members of Congress as part of the ATPC’s annual Capitol Hill fly-in. “The rapidly evolving payments space is not only full of opportunity but also challenges, and it’s critical those voices leading the efforts are heard and supported,” commented Brown. “Highline strongly believes in ATPC’s mission to promote our vital industry and we look forward to working together alongside our peers to help further advance it.”
