The bank card processing company grew from 5 to 155 employees in just a few years.
Priority Payment Systems of Alpharetta started out with five employees six years ago, but since then it has grown to 155 employees. The additional employees required additional space, so the Westside Parkway offices had to expand. The firm "knocked out" the walls to add 10,000 square feet of space. On Tuesday, Sept. 20, a ribbon cutting marked the expansion. John V. Priore, the company president/CEO and one of its founders, thanked its clients and staff for bringing the company to this stage. In May 2011, the company reported processing more than $450 million bank card volume per month, which would equate to more than $5.4 billion per year. The company continues to grow.
