Mr. Tourek describes his initial focus this way: "JetPay has a unique business model which is the most flexible, strong, and responsive in the payments industry.  It is a one vendor model that covers virtually every important financial transaction that a business requires.  I am excited to bring this message to a nationwide audience in the coming months and to build our team of specialists to serve our customers."
