ability to provide the absolute best advisory services to our clients," said

our highly successful $2 billion sale to Visa. I would highly recommend Jeff
to any CEO in the financial technology sector.  It is terrific to see Jeff

in the future knowing he'll continue to guide other CEOs and Boards in some of
the industry's most important transactions."
