FRISCO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Century Payments, Inc., an industry leader in payment processing, announced today it has been awarded the 360th position on Inc. Magazine’s 500 list of the fastest growing, privately owned businesses. Introduced back in 1982, the Inc. 500 list was developed to showcase privately held companies.
“It is humbling to make the list four years in a row based on our year-over-year organic growth. We are very proud of this recognition. It proves our philosophy of cultivating talent and focusing on our partners is the right strategic direction.”
Few organizations have been able to achieve such extraordinary growth to rank in the top 500 four years consecutively. This year’s incredible growth rate is credited to Century’s dedication to providing their partners and customers with unique revenue generating products and services.
Century's focus on partnerships goes well beyond the typical one-time referral payment or co-branded offering. Partners who join forces with Century enjoy dedicated sales teams who reinforce the partner's value proposition, increase ongoing residuals with equity options, and promote the ability to offer electronic payments to their customers using their own brand through Century’s white label program. Backed by state-of-the-art technology and market expertise, this strengthens partner brands and increases partner profits for continued success.
“In order to drive employee behavior that resulted in customer-centricity and high performance, we identified our strengths and created a high-energy environment. By launching the right culture, we established a foothold in the market,” said Robert Wechsler, CEO and Co-Founder of Century Payments. “It is humbling to make the list four years in a row based on our year-over-year organic growth. We are very proud of this recognition. It proves our philosophy of cultivating talent and focusing on our partners is the right strategic direction.” Wechsler added, “Our emphasis on people’s freedom to flourish builds customer relationships, demonstrates value and creates operational excellence.”
