We’re toasting our glasses of wine together thanking our lucky fortune to have attended Deerfield together and maintained such a strong bond. Deerfield really is the gift that keeps on giving,” wrote Andy Ling ’77 who founded ZipRemit, Inc. (www.zipremit.com) which provides merchant-branded consumer finance and will soon be trading publicly. “We provide a SaaS micro-lending solution for merchants to offer as an alternative credit facility for their customers, save them significantly on interchange fees and ensure that the merchant retains their customer and not lose them to third-party credit card and payment companies. The mobile payments industry is rapidly growing and we’re riding the wave.”
Deerfield classmates joining the ZipRemit team include early investor, Bill Barry ’77, advisory board members Tom Mallory ’77 and Jamie MacPherson ’77 and Townley Paton ’77 who is the company’s Chief Marketing Officer.
