Direct Connect

CHANTILLY, VA, July 14, 2016 — Matt Clyne, CEO of the payments processor Direct Connect, today announced that he is adding two key employees to his rapidly growing staff.

Roy Bricker, most recently a Senior Vice President for Product and Operations at Vantiv, joins Direct Connect as COO and CIO.

Brock Robertson, most recently CMO and Board Member at Element Payment Services, will now serve as Direct Connect’s Chief Marketing Officer for Integrated Payments.

The two high-level additions “have track records of success in maximizing corporate performance, driving growth and increasing market shares, and clearly reflect Direct Connect’s commitment to furthering its software integration strategy,” Clyne noted.

Bricker and Robertson worked together at Element Payment Services, where Bricker was COO and Robertson CMO.   With a combined 45 years of experience in payments, the two share a dedication to forging ownership of important new payments markets.

“We are thrilled to be working together again, especially with a team as dynamic, productive and forward-thinking as Direct Connect,” Bricker said.  “We look forward to building Direct Connect’s leadership in the software arena,” Robertson added.

Both can be reached at Direct Connect Corporate Headquarters, 800-747-6273.
