Earthport trade mission to payments capital Atlanta

Earthport continues to build its US presence following a recent UK trade mission trip to Atlanta, the payments capital of the US, organised by the Department for International Trade. The Atlanta summit came in the wake of Earthport being granted a New York Money Transmitter licence earlier this year.

Mike Steinharter, Chief Commercial Officer and Joseph Stark, Vice President, Head of Americas, represented Earthport at the trade mission aimed to not only promote British business overseas, but with Atlanta being the payments capital of the US, also allowed Earthport to increase its payments links and networking relations.

“The US is a key growth market for Earthport and presents a number of exciting opportunities – and coupled with our New York Money Transmitter licence – we are excited about the future”, Valli Ardalan, Earthport’s Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, told PaymentEye.

“All of this enables us to service a wider range of customers and expand on our already growing presence in the US. Atlanta has quickly become the payments hub of the US and we were honoured to be part of the UK delegation and grateful to the DIT for including us.”

“We were delighted to receive the invitation from DIT to represent British business abroad, as well as the opportunity to build on our presence in America. We wanted to both support the UK DIT and represent Earthport as a proud British business,” Mike Steinharter, CCO, said.

“Atlanta is the payments hub of the US and presented a great opportunity for us to engage with a wide variety of US companies. Our recent award of a New York Money Transmitter licence enables us to service US businesses and offer them our leading cross border payment services. We are confident in our ability to add value to US businesses looking to expand internationally and thank the DIT for including us in this great event.”
