Celero’s Moore Named to ETA 40 Under 40 List for 2020

Celero Commerce’s Matt Moore has earned a place in the Electronic Transaction Association’s annual list of young gamechangers at the intersection of payments and technology, the 2020 ETA 40 Under 40.

The prestigious recognition is based on each individual’s impact and professional character, and the group represents all of the evolving segments of the industry. The 40 Under 40 class for 2020 highlights young executives and professionals whose actions and leadership are driving the payments industry forward.

The Electronic Transactions Association is the leading trade association for the payments industry, representing over 500 companies worldwide involved in electronic transaction processing products and services. The purpose of ETA is to influence, monitor and shape the payments industry by providing leadership through education, advocacy and the exchange of information.

ETAs membership spans the breadth of the payments industry to include independent sales organizations (ISOs), payments networks, financial institutions, transaction processors, mobile payments products and services, payments technologies, and software providers (ISV) and hardware suppliers.

Matt Moore joined Celero Commerce in 2019 through its acquisition of fellow Nashville-area fintech company Elmhurst Financial. Matt  joined Elmhurst in 2005, shortly after graduating from the University of Georgia with dual bachelor’s degrees in international business and French.

During his 15-year tenure at Elmhurst, Moore has pioneered the development of the firm’s all-inclusive BankMax platform, designed to provide large community banks and regional banks with an all-in-one platform for card processing, analytics, and developing strong, sustainable sales cultures that effectively meet commercial depositors’ merchant service needs.  President of Elmhurst’s BankMax division, Matt, is now an emerging leader in Celero’s financial institution channel for developing bank and credit union partnerships nationwide.

“Looking at the list of honorees for this year’s 40 Under 40 leaves me very humble,” Matt said. “These are some great people, many of whom I know and admire professionally, working across a spectrum of payments and fintech companies. Most of all, I think this is a recognition of what we’re doing at Celero to bring greater value to small businesses across the country.”

“Matt’s inclusion in the ETA 40 Under 40 is well-deserved,” said Celero Commerce founder and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Jones.  “He is a real star in this industry, because he’s intelligent, hard-working, and humble.  It’s an honor to work alongside people of Matt’s caliber, and he sets a real example for all of us as we develop a high-performance culture.”
