Inside Sales Manager
Jake serves all merchant types well and has a focus on small business and financial institutions. He has a great understanding of merchant needs and is great to work with. He is extremely involved in his local community both in the chamber of commerce and non-profit networks.
In Fall ’08 at Illinois State University I helped form a microfinance institution, Ekkekko, which distributed microloans to struggling entrepreneurs in Lima, Peru. We made these loans to all types of individuals with two things in common: 1) Business Driven; 2) Struggling to survive in a third-world country.
Upon graduation I moved to New York City to accept a job as a business analyst for a large corporation. After a full year of working at our office on 42nd and Madison. In January 2010 I moved back to Illinois to find a more rewarding job, ideally in the arena of economic development to help others achieve their American Dream.
Shortly after I made this decision, I learned about Payline Data & Payline Giving, and as they say, “the rest is history.” I have found more happiness in a job than I ever thought imaginable. On a daily basis I get to meet new people, learn about new businesses, and see first hand how much good is being done by Non-Profits across the nation. I feel personally responsible for a portion of the goodwill being built. Any given day I can look at my book of business as a reminder of the goodwill built, and there could not be a more motivating driver to continue doing what I do.
