ATLANTA, Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leader in payment processing services, announces that John M. Partridge has been nominated for election to its Board of Directors at the 2013 shareholder meeting in November.


Mr. Partridge brings nearly 40 years of extensive experience within the financial services industry to Global Payments. Mr. Partridge most recently served as president of Visa Inc., where he managed marketing, product, client service support, processing and technology.  Prior to being named president, he served as chief operating officer and led efforts to transform Visa from a membership association owned by financial institutions into a global, publicly-traded company.

Before joining Visa, Mr. Partridge served as the first president and chief executive officer of Inovant, the company that owns and operates Visa's electronic payment processing service. He led major efforts to diversify Inovant's corporate footprint, create new centers of excellence for emerging technologies and ecommerce, and examine alternative processing approaches for the global marketplace.

He has also held executive leadership positions with UNUM Corporation, CrediCorp, Inc., Banco de Credito del Peru in Lima and Wells Fargo Bank. Mr. Partridge holds a BS in Economics from the University of California, Berkeley.

"John's years of executive leadership with Visa and far-reaching industry knowledge will be an outstanding asset to Global Payments," said Paul R. Garcia. "We look forward to welcoming him to our Board of Directors."

General Edwin H. Burba, Jr. (Ret.) and Raymond L. Killian, Jr., will retire from the Global Payments Board of Directors at the end of their current terms as directors which expire on November 20, 2013. General Burba assumed his responsibilities as Director on Global Payments' Board in 2001 and has served as Chairman of the company's Compensation Committee since inception. Mr. Killian has served on the company's Board of Directors since 2003 as well as Chairman of the Technology Committee since 2007.

"On behalf of Global Payments, I want to thank General Burba and Mr. Killian for their distinguished service on our Board of Directors.  The company and our shareholders have benefited greatly from their expertise and invaluable counsel," said Mr. Garcia.
