Stacey Wiles, President Stromden Consulting
With over 20 years of working experience in the electronic payments industry, Stacey is a seasoned professional with a passion for helping companies overcome payments and sales operations related challenges. Over the course of her career, she's had an opportunity to work with some of the most dynamic and complex payment systems around the globe, crossing a number of industry verticals.
Throughout the early part of her career, Stacey earned her way to positions such as Director of Operations (Western Region - Paymentech), VP Operations & Customer Servicing (Connect Merchant Payment Services - First Data ISO) and Vice President Business Development (Merchant eSolutions - a Cielo Company).
In 2004, she started Appraisal Fee Services Inc. ("AFS") - a FinTech company that provided payment processing and payout services to the residential mortgage lending industry. By creating strategic partnerships with leading technology platforms and service providers, Stacey grew the company from a start-up operating out of guest bedroom to a national firm managing over $100MM of appraisal related fees annually for the countries largest residential mortgage lenders.
Wanting to be challenged with her next career move, after selling AFS in 2010, she shifted her focus to international payments. Over the past several years, she has dedicated thousands of hours to learning about local payment products, country purchasing behaviors, cross-border payment vendors, and implementation operations.
Once over the learning curve, she realized the same frictions that exist between domestic payment providers and merchants also exist in the international market.
Looking to make a difference and help companies manage their payments projects and sales operations, Stacey decided to start consulting full time through her consulting company - Stromden Consulting Inc.
