The term, “natural born leader” is frequently used to describe someone with an inherent vision to lead. This issue of Aspioneer shares some of The Most Revolutionary CEOs in America including Jeff Brodsly, the CEO of Chosen Payments.
Brodsly first hit our radar when he was named to our 2019 Top 10 Solution Providers for Point-of-Sale transactions. From providing Clover Point-of-Sale terminals and systems to processing credit cards within many third-party POS systems, Chosen Payments offers full-service solutions for handling business transactions from ringing up the sale to receiving the payment in the bank.
Brodsly began building his empire while still attending Moorpark High School in his hometown of Moorpark, California. This unique credit card processing company, launched by Brodsly in 2008, has grown into one of the nation’s most prestigious credit card processing companies. Brodsly’s great vision as a CEO propelled Chosen Payments onto Inc. Magazine’s list of Fastest-Growing Companies in America. Chosen Payments was named the 800th fastest growing privately held company. Since the initial launch of Chosen Payments, Brodsly now has offices in Utah, Michigan, Kansas, Arizona and Georgia.
Brodsly admits the decision to major in sociology was based solely upon being the easiest program to earn a degree. Little did he know the information he would learn about the human mind in his psychology and sociology classes would help further define him as a revolutionary leader.
The Beginning of an Empire
Brodsly began his career in the credit card processing space as a merchant-level salesperson before growing his business to a national level. During days at Moorpark High School, Brodsly became involved in a business academy and the desire to become an entrepreneur began taking shape in his mind. His young leadership skills served him well as he helped lead the academy. He was very influential in recruiting other students to become a part of it. He enjoyed helping others and that led to his desire to lead others to success. It was while participating in that 1996 academy that Brodsly first coined the motto, Your Partner in Success. That motto would one day become the motto of Chosen Payments. The motto doesn’t simply apply to being “partners” with the thousands of merchants that process credit cards with Chosen Payments but also to the 150+ employees of Chosen Payments who are treated as partners rather than employees.
Upon graduation from high school, Brodsly enrolled in San Diego State University and majored in sociology. Brodsly admits the decision to major in sociology was based solely upon being the easiest program to earn a degree. Little did he know the information he would learn about the human mind in his psychology and sociology classes would help further define him as a revolutionary leader.
Brodsly was quick to recognize that business owners want to conduct business from anywhere, at any time. In such, Chosen Payments designed a custom mobile application that allows their clients to manage their business from their smartphone.
