Updated: Jun 21, 2021

Subject Matter Experts Tapped to Continue Issuer’s Triple-Digit Growth Rates

September 19th, 2018 (Dell Rapids, S.D.) – Central Payments, the payments division of Central Bank of Kansas City

(CBKC), is adding industry veterans to its leadership team. The country’s fastest growing

prepaid card issuer recently hired Alice Beyer as Vice President of Operations and Nikkee Rhody as Sr. Director of Business Development and Marketplace Strategy. The company has also brought on Kelli Jamison as Director of Client Relations and promoted Kelli DeCosse to Director of Program Management.

Beyer and Rhody each bring more than 15 years of payment card experience to the burgeoning issuer and payments management company. Beyer leads Central Payments’ data-driven, solutions-based approach to its payment operations. Rhody is charged with ensuring the bank’s suite of services, products, and technological capabilities are responsive to the marketplace – particularly among fintech and paytech providers. Jamison and DeCosse are focused on existing partner success and program development.

“These additions exemplify our commitment to client success and our insistence on redefining the role of bank issuer,” said Trent Sorbe, President of Central Payments. “All of our clients are strategic partners and are deserving of the highest level of service and creativity. Our partners tell us that access to experienced, empowered subject matter experts is an indispensable differentiator when it comes to their relationship with Central Payments.
