Anovia Payments Hires Industry Veteran Findlater to Lead Strategic Partner Channel

Anovia Payments, a single-source provider of payments with advanced, yet easy-to-use partner technology, announces the hiring of payments industry veteran John Findlater.

In his new role at Anovia, Findlater will serve as Vice President of the Strategic Partner Channel, overseeing partner integration into Anovia’s trio platform, which unifies sales, operations, and reporting.  Coupled with the company’s traditional and payment facilitation platforms, trio leaves Anovia uniquely positioned to help forward-thinking payments companies find success with equal attention to growth, security, and compliance, while providing a frictionless boarding experience for merchants.

Findlater comes to Anovia after 15 years at TSYS, based in Columbus, Georgia. TSYS supports the payments industry with secure and seamless issuer processing, merchant acquisition, and prepaid program management. In his most recent role at TSYS as Director of Client Relations, Findlater provided senior leadership to the client-facing division, TSYS Acquiring Solutions.

Findlater began his payments career in 1998 as a field-based merchant sales representative at the Alabama-based SouthTrust Bank.

According to Findlater, the decision to join Anovia after performing in various leadership roles at TSYS, was an easy one to make. “I wanted a new home with an opportunity that combined solid operations, white glove service, and differentiating technology—these are the core components of a winning partner channel,” said Findlater. “I’ve found that home at Anovia.”

“We are thrilled to have John Findlater lead our strategic partner channel at Anovia,” said CEO Kevin Jones. “John has earned a stellar reputation for being genuine and honest, along with the highest levels of expertise and understanding of the payments ecosystem. There are few people in the payments industry that I respect and admire as much as John, and we feel fortunate to have him on our team.”

As Anovia continued to make investments in its multimillion-dollar partner-facing technology platform, trio, Jones says the company needed to “attract a leader with the experience and aptitude to appropriately represent Anovia’s white glove, custom approach to payments. With John Findlater, we did just that.”
