Bank Solutions Group, LLC (BSG) announced today that Peter J. Quadagno has joined the consulting firm as a partner in its payments practice.
“Peter brings to our firm immense payments industry experience as a prepaid card business industry executive, entrepreneur and consultant,” says BSG’s Senior Managing Partner Les Riedl. “He is one of the country’s foremost authorities on the development and implementation of stored value, prepaid programs and EMV. He has assisted numerous clients, including banks, retailers, phone companies, universities, transit and toll authorities, and others. We are very pleased to have him join our consulting team.”
