Managing Partner, Platinum Payment Systems
Ryan Ellefsen is the Managing Partner of Platinum Payment Systems(www.platpay.com) and is also the Vice President of National Marketing Resources (NMR). Ryan knows that for merchants, many of the issues they face involve the disconnect they feel towards the banks they work with because banks don’t understand the frustrations faced by merchants. This is what sets Ryan and his team at Platinum apart. They aren’t bankers, they’re marketers. Ryan understands merchants and the issues they face because he has dealt with the same issues and has come out on the other side with experience and success. Ryan has faced obstacles including hundreds of chargebacks and his company completely shutting down with him immediately fixing the problem in order to keep processing. Ryan has also worked with many high-risk marketing companies, running billions of dollars of sales. He doesn’t just “talk the talk,” he has literally “walked the walk.” Ryan took difficult and seemingly impossible situations and flipped them around to keep companies processing.
