London, UK, & Sioux Falls, USA – ATMIA today called for nominations and applications for names of ATM Industry Champions as part of the dual anniversary celebrations in 2017 for the ATM’s 50th birthday and the association’s 20th anniversary.
“It’s fitting to showcase ATM industry champions on our new portal in this milestone year for the industry,” explained Mike Lee, CEO of ATMIA. “The association honors those who have changed the ATM industry for the better and who exemplify what is meant by good industry citizenship.”
The portal of champions has two sections, one for thought leaders, innovators and movers and shakers currently active in the industry, as well honorary ATM champions who are not directly involved in the ATM business at present.
“During the past 15 years, I’ve met many great leaders who have integrity and who are awesome citizens of the ATM industry and I have also met one or two leaders who have betrayed the trust that was invested in them and made dubious, damaging decisions which are not in the interests of the broader ATM industry,” Lee commented. “The hope is that this expanding portal will showcase the true champions among us and inspire the spread of the good citizenship that is so vital to our future as an industry.”
Applications and nominations for ATM industry champions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with a short motivation.
