As we begin wrapping up another successful year, we want to give big thanks for making this year the best year that Chosen Payments has had since our inception. It takes great people to run a company and it takes people doing business with a company to make it successful. Both groups of people are vital to the overall success of a company. Our success was measured by our inclusion in First Data’s President’s Club for the 4th year in a row! This is a distinction given to the best of the best merchant services providers. We fully expect 2017 to begin the same.
On the inside of Chosen Payments, we have a great team. Each team member brings a special knowledge, skill or expertise to the table to serve our industry unique customers. In case you didn’t know, Chosen Payments is dedicated to serving the following industries:

Under the guidance of our CEO, Jeff Brodsly, the company has thrived. We were featured in the national publication, Business Solutions!
We were honored to participate in trade shows all over the country. Our team set up booths at jewelry shows, uniform shows, the cellular telephone industry show, SEMA, limo shows and yes, even funeral shows. We sponsored many golf tournaments, casino nights, board meetings, focus groups, holiday parties and other fundraising events. We not only sponsored them, we participated in them.

We love sharing rebate checks with associations and truly thank their respective membership for allowing us to be their credit card processor. Our program is win-win for everyone.
