Congratulations to Jeff Brodsly of Chosen Payments for Landing on 2019 “Forty Under 40” List

Here at the AAFD, we only seek out the best suppliers for our Branded Partner program so we can offer our members truly excellent services and unbeatable deals. One of our most recent Branded Partners is Chosen Payments, which has teamed up with the AAFD as our Electronic Payment and Processing Program partner.

In the spring issue of its Transaction Trends magazine, ETA will recognize Chosen Payments’ President and CEO, Jeff Brodsly as one of its “Forty Under 40.” Jeff will also be honored at the ETA’s premier TRANSACT event.
