Assurz, Inc., a provider of 100% Satisfaction Guarantee services for online shopping, today announced the appointment of payment industry veteran Gregg Gumbinger to serve as Vice President of Business Development. Gumbinger is responsible for establishing relationships with online merchants interested in increasing sales by offering the Assurz Satisfaction Guarantee, as well as acquirers and ISOs who benefit financially by selling the Assurz service to their merchant clients.
Gumbinger has over 25 years of experience in the bankcard payment and eCommerce industries. Immediately before joining Assurz, he spent four years at Authorize.Net as VP of Business Development for the Channel Sales Group. He previously worked for First Data Merchant Services as the Director of Strategic Marketing in the eCommerce division. He has also held marketing and business development positions at Visa USA, MCI, ClearCommerce, HomeAccount and the original Pay By Touch company.
“Assurz is pioneering a new concept in the emerging confidence management and returns management field, and we need a proven leader with the expertise and industry connections to help shape and execute our business development strategy,” said Steve Hoffman, CEO of Assurz. “Gregg has an ideal background and skill set, including deep roots in the acquirer channel that will play a vital role in promoting the Assurz service to the online merchant community.”
“The Assurz service is a first-of-its-kind solution that increases merchant sales revenues by addressing online purchasing barriers that frequently cause consumers to abandon shopping carts and that is going to have a strong appeal to merchants and acquirers,” Gumbinger said. “This gives me the opportunity to build comprehensive business support for the concept and make shopping with the Assurz guarantee as ubiquitous in online commerce as using credit cards online.”
