The PaymentsJournal Executive Profile Series interviews are designed to capture the thought leadership of executives at the forefront of the dynamic areas (such as prepaid, emerging technologies and mobile payments) creating today's conversations and shaping the industry. The inaugural interview is with Todd Nuttall, CEO and Chairman from Better ATM Services, a leading technology innovator in the ATM industry.
In 2011, Better ATM Services and Visa launched a pilot program which enables consumers to purchase Visa-branded gift cards from ATMs belonging to three credit unions in Arizona. In his interview, Nuttall discusses the lessons Better ATM Services and Visa learned from the pilot along with the opportunities for distribution of open-loop gift cards through the self-service channel.
"The act of issuing cards from the ATM is simply the tip of the iceberg. This, along with other payment innovations is opening the door for even more value-generating services. Beyond the opportunity to provide a wide array of ATM-dispensed products, there are also numerous developments looming on the horizon that will help consumers manage their disparate financial services," Nuttall states in the PaymentsJournal executive interview.
In his position as chief executive officer, Nuttall brings more than 20 years of experience in domestic and international business leadership, finance, payments systems, audit, and business consulting to Better ATM Services. Nuttall has also served as vice president of financial and strategic services for American Express and vice president and CFO of American Express World-Wide Data Operations.
