Atlantic’s principal owners are Jerry Savage and Bill Baker. These two sales management professionals first met and worked together over three decades ago at McBee Systems, a nationwide business check printing and payroll processing services provider. Their focus at McBee was managing relationships with Community Banks that provided their customers with business checks, along with related McBee products and services.
In early 2003, Bill Baker moved from McBee to Sterling Payment Technologies, where he built and managed an internal sales team while developing an expertise in the electronic payment business. In 2005 Savage and Baker formed Atlantic Merchant Services and began assembling a sales team. Most of the Sales Professionals that they recruited to Atlantic were former employees from McBee, whom they had hired and trained years ago. Jerry Savage was appointed President/CEO and Bill Baker assumed the duties of Executive Vice President/COO. In terms of their individual focus at Atlantic, Savage focuses on finance, human resources, sales recruitment, and bank relationship management. Baker handles product development, marketing, sales relationship management, and technology responsibilities.
Working with Community and Regional Banks for over 30 years has given the principals’ a deep understanding of the needs of the Banking community and their business customers. In 2005 Savage and Baker formed Atlantic Merchant Services and began assembling a first rate team focused on serving the needs of businesses.
