Elavon’s Marianne Johnson Selected To Speak About Innovation In Payments At The Innovation Project 2013

Stocks in this article: USB

Elavon, a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) and a leading global payment solutions provider, today announced that Marianne Johnson, head of global product and innovation, will speak at the Innovation Project 2013, hosted by PYMNTS.com taking place March 20 th-21st at the Harvard University in Cambridge- MA. Johnson will participate in the session entitled The Architecture of Innovation and will discuss how Elavon has created an innovation agenda that includes both internal initiatives as well as key partnerships with emerging solutions providers. Moderated byJosh Lerner, Johnson will be joined by other payments industry leaders.

Elavon recently opened a mobile innovation center at its Atlanta headquarters focused on new technology and product development for mobile payments. “Our focus will be on technologies that enable merchants to accept payments via mobile devices while also ensuring the ease of use and safety of the transaction from the customer’s perspective,” Johnson said. “As mobile payments become more acceptable by merchants and customers alike, technology must keep pace with the needs on both sides of the transaction.” Elavon’s parent company, U.S. Bank, is a leader in mobile banking technology, making mobile payments technology a natural point of focus for Elavon.

In addition to its internal innovation focus, Elavon has launched partnerships that capitalize on new technologies and solutions that have entered the marketplace, including the recent addition of NCR Silver to its portfolio of payments solutions and the acquisition of Collective Point of Sale Solutions Ltd. (Collective POS) in Toronto, Canada.

The Innovation Project 2013 will assemble the most senior executives and elite innovators from just about every established payments company worldwide, and CEOs of the most innovative startups to change the conversation about how to create, ignite and scale innovation.

“We are so pleased Marianne Johnson will be attending the Innovation Project 2013. Marianne’s deep expertise and perspectives in the areas impacting the payments industry today will be of great value to our delegates,” said Karen Webster, CEO at market platform dynamics.
