Heartland Payment Systems and Marathon National Bank of New York to Offer Business Clients Expanded Services


Heartland Payment Systems® (NYSE: HPY), one of the nation's largest payments processors, and Marathon National Bank of New York are partnering to offer area businesses best-in-class services that will enable them to improve their operations and increase profitability. Headquartered in Astoria, New York, Marathon is a full-service commercial bank with 13 locations in the greater New York Metropolitan area and New Jersey.

The strategic partnership provides expanded services to business clients of both companies. Heartland will offer Marathon's clients credit/debit/prepaid card processing with competitive pricing and payroll processing through its PlusOneSM Payroll online payroll management system. In turn, Heartland will recommend Marathon's business banking solutions to its merchant customers.

“Marathon is a leading regional bank dedicated to offering unparalleled products and personal service to their customers — as is Heartland,” said Brad Wilson, director of bank alliances at Heartland. “Our ability to offer processing solutions for payroll and card payments under one roof will enable Marathon's customers to increase operational efficiency and lower their expenses, while our face-to-face sales and servicing approach will ensure each customer has access to local support when they need it.”

Chris Koutsis, Executive Vice President of Marathon, added, “Our paramount goal for over two decades has been to deliver our business customers the products and services they need to successfully operate their businesses. By partnering with Heartland, we can now give our customers access to efficient, cost-effective payments from a trusted processor and a state-of-the-art payroll processing platform in addition to our creative financial solutions. Our customers can concentrate on making their businesses profitable knowing they have a trusted bank and processor behind them. We are excited about this new partnership and the new opportunities for growth — both for our companies and our customers.”
