After a locally-based credit card processing company was purchased by a large, out of the area, company, employees Ken Musante, Steve Kimberling and Scott Bartlett quit, frustrated with the lack of local support and ability to provide Humboldt County customers with quality service. Bartlett then founded Eureka payments and soon invited Kimberling and Musante to be partners. The group leveraged their access to investment capital, knowledge of the card processing industry, contacts within Humboldt County and the credit card processing industry and ability to structure very low cost agreements with banking partners to establish and grow their business. The company operates an office in Eureka and recently expanded to include an office in Medford, Oregon. They employ the 3 managing partners, 4 full-time sales and service staff members and one part time service representative to serve clients throughout the county and country.
“Both staff and managing partners continually strive to ensure our service remains superior because we are personally invested in the success of our company, the community and the businesses we serve. ” Ken Musante, President, Eureka Payments
