JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Sound Payments, a technology company in the petroleum and payments industries, has brought on Mike White as its vice president of sales for the petroleum channel. Mike will lead and grow a team of professionals that will support products for the petroleum industry, including Sound Easy Pump. White’s prior experience includes decades of experience at DRB and Verifone.
“Sound Easy Pump is just the beginning of a line of better software and hardware in the petroleum industry. With Mike’s leadership, we will grow the channel and offer more options to c-stores that are currently dominated by a couple of players,” said Andrew Russell, president of Sound Payments.
At DRB, White was responsible for working with marketing, product development, and operations to develop short and long-term strategies. White and his team secured contracts with car washing retailers in the petroleum convenience industry, including Circle K, 7-11, Speedway and Kwik Trip. Additionally, Mike has 13 years of experience at Verifone, where he was the national sales manager and led a sales team.
“I am beyond excited to get in on this opportunity and join the Sound Payments team,” said White, vice president of sales for Sound Payments. “Sound Payments nailed it with the introduction of Sound Easy Pump. I genuinely believe that this is just the beginning of bringing all of the latest technology to the small rural areas across America.”
Sound Easy Pump also includes contactless mobile payments. Sound Payments’ EMV technology is the first of many planned internet-of-things products introduced to the petroleum industry and is working on opportunities beyond the forecourt, including electric vehicle charging stations, air, vacuum machines, carwash and drive-thru, bringing all of this together on one platform and dashboard.
Sound Payments, based in Jacksonville, Fla., provides technology products for the petroleum industry, including Sound Easy Pump, which enables stations to cost-effectively install a retrofit solution at the pump that solves EMV.
