How long have you been doing this? About 18 months.

What do you do? We do credit card and check processing and payroll. We’ve been exclusively endorsed by the Vail Valley Partnership as well as the Colorado Restaurant Association.

What’s the most challenging part of your job? For me, being in a wheelchair, it’s the weather. Stairs are a bummer, too, especially in older buildings.

What’s the most interesting thing about your job? I think it’s the difference between the Front Range and the mountains. Here, we have a close-knit, loyal group of business owners. I have to make a real effort to show that I’m going to be around, that I’m going to be part of this community.

What do you want clients, or prospective clients, to know about your company? The credit card industry is unregulated. There are a lot of cheesy processors out there who have hidden charges and fees. Heartland created a merchant’s bill of rights, and it’s going to be the law some day. We want to protect small and medium-sized businesses from bad processors. We believe the way we operate is the way all processors should be run.
