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."

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.
