August 17, 2017 (Irving, TX) Anovia Payments, a disruptive payments solution provider based in the fintech hub of Dallas-Fort Worth has just been named to Inc. magazine’s Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This recognition comes on the heels of receiving the Electronic Transactions Association’s ISO of the Year Award in April 2017.
Founded in 2013 by payments industry veterans Kevin Jones and Andy Meadows, Anovia Payments has achieved more than 4,500 percent growth in the past three years with operations in the US, Canada, and Australia. The company’s meteoric rise has placed it at number 82 in Inc. magazine’s annual list of growth companies across virtually every industry sector.
Of particular significance, Anovia’s three-year performance ranked the company at number five among all financial companies on the Inc 5000 list. From a geographic perspective, Anovia placed number five in the Dallas market and number six in the entire state of Texas.
The company’s growth can be attributed to multiple factors, said Jones, CEO and President of Anovia Payments. “Our growing team of more than 50 fintech professionals is hungry to create value for our customers by delivering an unparalleled user experience for partners and merchants, investing in breakthrough technologies that drive simplicity, and focusing on strategic partnerships that help us cultivate business relationships acquired through trusted and proven referral sources,” said Jones, a 20-year veteran of the industry with stops at Chase Paymentech, First American, and SignaPay.
The company has continued to diversify its product line and showed its strength in app development earlier this summer with the launch of HostIt, featuring end-to-end event management capabilities with integrated electronic payments. With HostIt, users are able to create custom URLs for event details, ticketing, automated invitations, attendee confirmation tracking, and payment acceptance at no cost to the organizer. Anovia’s most recent foray in app development features a simple and intuitive interface that is aimed at event managers, charitable organizations, trade groups, and individuals for anything from business meetings to concerts.
“I’m excited for the next chapter of growth of our organization” said Meadows, the company’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Strategy. “With the release of our developer’s platform, and investment in payment facilitation technology, we believe we can continue to drive immense value in helping our partners and merchant customers succeed.”
