Commenting on the new venture, Napoleon T. Butic, CEO and founder of Trout Payment Systems said, “Our clients will have several huge benefits of working with us. First, we are local. This means that the firm can be much more responsive to issues and more importantly build a relationship with clients and the local business community. Second, we have partnered with some of the nation’s top processors like Total Merchant Services and eMerchantBroker.com, both of whom are A rated or higher in the BBB and at the top of independent industry rankings. Third, my professional background and contacts can give clients access to a wealth of resources that can help their businesses.”
Mr. Butic, a Houston native, spent over a decade with New York City based Channel Capital Group, a hedge fund marketing company, where he ran the manager services unit for the HedgeFund.net division, before the firm was sold by owner Guggenheim Partners.
Prior to launching Trout, Mr. Butic spent a year as an independent merchant services agent selling for multiple service providers. He immersed himself in the industry, developed local relationships, and identified processors that were a best fit for his business model.
“Whether you are working on Wall Street or northwest Houston, relationship focused firms are the ones that, more often than not, persevere. Brokers in the finance industry understand that when everyone is pitching ‘the lowest price and best execution’ that they better have a value add. Similarly, at Trout, we are competitively priced, expeditious and reliable in our payment services, but also see ourselves as partners in our clients’ growth.”
Trout will begin with Mr. Butic’s book of existing clients built while working as an unbranded, independent agent. This includes businesses in the industries of auto repair, HVAC, non profit organizations, restaurants, IT consulting firms, accounting firms, Houston based e commerce companies, and many more.
Trout will build upon this base to substantially grow the firm through innovative social media strategies combined with word of mouth networking in chambers of commerce, trade groups, and civic organizations.
