All board members are charged with delivering high-level educational and networking opportunities for tenured payments professionals and those just beginning their careers in the field.

“It’s an honor to be part of the PaymentsEd Merchant Advisory Board, which is focused on promoting education and insights in payments,” said Tull. “ACI Worldwide’s global reach in real-time payments and billing puts us at the center of an industry that continues to push the limits when it comes to digital payments. I look forward to leveraging my experience to mentor and help others in this exciting and growing industry.”

The group’s main event – the PaymentsEd Forum – will take place in Washington, D.C. from August 8-10, 2022. It’s the industry’s only event focused solely on educational and networking opportunities for payments professionals in a non-sales environment. The event gives attendees access to industry leaders and educational content that helps them to grow and become more successful and effective in their careers.
