ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 2, 2022-- Repay Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: RPAY) (“REPAY”), a leading provider of vertically-integrated payment solutions, today announced the addition of Michael Cottrell as Senior Vice President, Clearing & Settlement. In his new role, Cottrell will focus on growing and scaling operations, integrating processing technologies via mergers and acquisitions, and enhancing the offering of REPAY’s Clearing & Settlement platform.

Throughout Cottrell’s career, he has served in various roles that have equipped him with extensive knowledge of the fintech and payments industry. Prior to joining REPAY, Cottrell served as the President of Metrics Global, where he was responsible for the development, augmentation and customization of the company’s suite of payment technology solutions. Before Metrics Global, Cottrell served as the Vice President of Product at Global Payments, and before the merger of TSYS and Global Payments, he served as President of ProPay, a TSYS company. Cottrell also served as President and Senior Vice President Global Sales at ProPay, where he led efforts to bring ProPay’s Payment Facilitator (PayFac) offering to market. Prior to ProPay, he was Chief Business Development Officer for TriSource Solutions, an ISO and clearing processor, which REPAY acquired in 2019.

“Our goal is to power the end-to-end payment experience, from payment acceptance to back-end processing and payouts,” said Shaler Alias, President at REPAY. “As we look to expand our clearing and settlement platform, it’s clear that Michael is the ideal leader. With his extensive background working with PayFacs, gateways and authorization platforms, Michael is equipped to develop strategies and cement the relationships necessary to lead our team to the next level.”

“Joining the team at REPAY is almost second nature after working with TriSource Solutions ahead of the acquisition,” said Michael Cottrell. “It’s an exciting time to be in the payments industry, and I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences driving product and knowledge of the greater payments processing ecosystem. Together, we’ll be able to strengthen REPAY’s offerings and deliver even better service to our clients.”
