LOUISVILLE, Colo., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Responding to company growth,
TransFirst, a leading provider of transaction processing services and payment
enabling technologies, is hosting a job fair from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on
Wednesday, September 15 at its new divisional headquarters at 371 Centennial
Parkway in Louisville, Colo.
Based in Dallas, TransFirst is the largest privately held transaction
processor, and the 12th largest in the U.S. with $18.5 billion in annual
processing volume for more than 150,000 merchants and 760 banks. All of the
company's operations are handled out of its Louisville, Colo. office, where
the company currently employs approximately 200 people.
To handle its growth, TransFirst is doubling its office space to
73,000-square-feet and will be holding Wednesday's job fair at this new office
location (371 Centennial Parkway).
"This is the third time in TransFirst's history that the company has
doubled its business and size," said Mark Travis, TransFirst's Senior Vice
President and CFO. "We are extremely pleased with the level of people we've
brought on board in Colorado, and we are hoping to recruit approximately 100
new employees starting immediately."
TransFirst has positions open in every category -- from entry level to
senior account management, with most of these being full-time positions.
One-on-one interviews will be held at the job fair and six-to-eight TransFirst
managers and senior level executives will be present throughout the day to
interview job seekers.
In April, 2004, TransFirst acquired the third party and agent bank
merchant division of Cincinnati-based Fifth Third Bank Processing Solutions.
The transaction increased the company's size from $11 billion to $18.5 billion
in annual processing volume and ranked the company as the nation's 12th
largest processor, according to The Nilson Report's 2002 list of top U.S. bank
card acquirers. In March 2004, TransFirst acquired Newport Beach, Calif.-
based Payment Resources International (PRI). With the acquisition of PRI,
TransFirst added approximately $1.8 billion in annual processing volume and
7,500 total merchant contracts.

by GTCR Golder Rauner LLC, a leading private equity investment firm,
