Bluefin Payment Systems, the leading provider of secure payment gateway

board of directors. Mr. Chu is currently a principal at DC Advisors, and has

Bluefin Payment Systems focuses on enabling full-service payment solutions to
software platforms offered by companies in a diverse range of verticals,
including health/fitness, medical, legal, transportation, death care and more.

“We are thrilled to have Dickson join Bluefin’s board,” said John M. Perry,
CEO of Bluefin Payment Systems. “He will add valuable payment experience and
his first-hand knowledge of the software industry is a perfect fit, as Bluefin
continues to lead in payments enablement to the software industry.”

Mr. Chu brings more than 25 years of experience in payments and technology and
is an active advisor to a number of emerging companies. Prior to joining DC

Mr. Chu held senior management positions at Yahoo! PayDirect, I-Impact (an
analytical software company), Innoventry (a self-service kiosk payments
