PRAISE FOR OUR TEAM

from clients

Jeff Hartmann possesses many qualities that I admire in a leader: smart, innovative, funny, honest, loyal, and trustworthy are just a few words that come to mind. I will be always be grateful to him for taking a chance on me nearly 15 years ago to be a supplier when I was just a small start-up payments company- thank you my friend and colleague!

Kirk Sanford

Jeff engaged me to work with him to develop a forward-looking strategy for Mohegan Sun. Jeff is one of the best casino managers in the world, as he understands that business from top to bottom and has a clear sense of the industry’s trends, opportunities, problems, and future direction. Anyone who engages him in his current role as an industry advisor will be making the right choice!
