Katie DeSalvo

At i3 Merchant Solutions, we pride ourselves on having the best employees in the industry, and this quarter, we want to feature our new Strategic Partnership Manager, Katie DeSalvo.

As Strategic Partnership Manager, Katie is responsible for helping our partners get the most out of our relationship with them. She is the liaison between our partners and our internal departments – sales, finance, and marketing – that helps our partnerships run smoothly and profitably.

Katie brings ten years of payment experience to her role, having previously worked at Vantiv where she focused on sales and partner relationship management. Outside of work, she focuses on her four kids (all under the age of seven) and runs half marathons in her spare time.

We also had a Q&A session with Katie. Here’s what she had to say.

Q. What motivates you to wake up and go to work every day?

A. “Providing for my  kids motivates me every day to do the best job I can. Most importantly, I take pride in showing them that you can be a good parent and also have a career that you love.”

Q. What is your favorite part about working at i3 Merchant Solutions?

A.  “I love the small company feel of i3 Merchant Solutions, even though it’s a part of a much bigger organization. There are so many connections within our organization and everyone welcomed me with open arms when I first started.”

Q. What does true leadership mean to you?

A.  “True leadership is having an open door policy with your employees and coworkers. Being able to have good and bad conversations in a way that is helpful instead of harmful is essential to being a good leader. And I believe i3 Merchant Solutions does just that.”

Q. What is your favorite inspirational quote?

A. “Push yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you.”

Q. If you could go anywhere on vacation, where would it be?

A.  “My dream vacation is renting an RV and heading out west for a month-long road trip when my kids are a little bit older. I never got the opportunity to do something like this when I was growing up, but I’d love to give my kids the experience of seeing some of nature’s beauty in out west would be amazing!”
