ControlScan CEO joins ETA board of directors

Welcomes new director

ControlScan CEO Joan E. Herbig has been elected to the 2013 board of directors for the Electronic Transactions Association (ETA), the trade association of the global electronic payments industry. Herbig’s leadership skills and unique payments industry perspective aims to help ETA extend its reach into new areas of dialogue and collaboration.

Herbig became CEO of Atlanta-based ControlScan in 2007, where she successfully transitioned the company into its present role as a provider of payment card industry (PCI) and data security solutions for small to mid-sized merchants and the acquirers serving them. Prior to joining ControlScan, Herbig spent three years as CEO of Cambia Security, Inc.

From an organizational perspective, ControlScan supports the payments industry through ETA’s business and education initiatives. The company recently established a formal in-house program to encourage staff participation in the ETA Certified Payments Professional (CPP) program.  In addition, executives from several of the company’s business units serve ETA members’ interests at the committee level.

“ETA meets a fundamental need within the payments space. Leaders representing all areas of our industry recognize the association’s influence and its value as a forum for networking, education and idea exchange,” said Herbig.
