From a small town of 3,000 people in rural Wisconsin, to founding a multi-million dollar company, Entrust ‘s CEO, Nate Reis, knows how much work goes into achieving such a prestigious recognition. Entrust Bankcard, a payment processing company focused on small businesses that have credit card sales of $10,000 to $100,000 per month, opened its doors in 2006. Since then, Reis’ company has seen steady growth during the down economy.
“We are honored to be ranked among so many esteemed companies,” said Reis. “Entrust Bankcard fights for the small business and our passion for constant improvement is what makes us successful and allows us to provide effective solutions for saving money.”
