FORT WAYNE, IN (May 15, 2019) — Allied Payment Network, the industry’s most progressive provider of online and mobile bill payment services to banks and credit unions, announced today the addition of Jeffrey A. Harper as chief revenue officer, effective May 6, 2019.

Harper is a 28-year financial industry veteran who has spent much of his career developing successful teams; identifying and managing strategic alliances; sales; marketing; accounting and finance. He has forged profitable relationships with many of the nation’s top-tier and community financial institutions, trade associations and suppliers to the banking industry. At Allied, Harper will expand the company’s channel partner network and advise on ways to create tangible differentiation in the way the company services its clients and end users.
