Kevin Jones, President and CEO

With more than 17 years in the payments industry, Kevin co-founded Anovia Payments in 2013, bringing with him a stellar reputation for generating results and unmatched commitment to making every voice count. Kevin previously served as President of SignaPay, where he oversaw all of the company’s operations, including sales, marketing, client relations, risk, credit, loss prevention and accounting, and doubling the company’s EBITDA.

He began his career in payments at Paymentech (now Chase Paymentech) where, as Senior Territory Manager, he built the Merchant Acquisition Team. He later served as Vice President of Sales and Marketing with First American Payment Systems, where he led the team to unprecedented revenue growth, partner retention and consistent recruitment.

Kevin holds a degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. When he is not leading the charge to change the payments industry, you may find Kevin hiking or biking with his wife, their three children and friends, coaching his son’s football team or watching a University of North Carolina basketball game.
