Executive Team

ClearSky Payments was founded on the premise that every business owner is a vital part of the community and deserves a fair, comprehensive and well serviced merchant account. After 20 years of owning and operating small businesses and having to switch processors multiple times due to misleading contracts, hidden fees and poor service, it became clear that there was a need for an agency that could offer more. We are dedicated to fulfilling this need.
