Robert CothranMember


In 2001, Robert joined the fintech community as a founding member of CSI, a payments company that would go on to be an early adopter of the Vantiv Payment Facilitation payments model.

During his tenure as CSI’s Senior Software Architect and President, he emphasized technical innovation and process optimization. As a result, CSI was able to support hundreds of clients who collectively processed more than $3 billion annually in card and echeck payments while simultaneously obtaining both a positive SSAE 16 attestation and a successful PCI-DSS Level 1 certification.

This narrative might seem somewhat common or otherwise ordinary if not for the fact that CSI was able to achieve these impressive benchmarks with no more than 15 employees.

As part of the Fintech513 team, Robert will leverage his experience to provide your team with technical guidance and operational insights that will help you engineer and optimize your payments solution.

“I enjoy creating interesting and disruptive technology solutions for the fintech space – particularly for my colleagues who provide wonderfully innovative payments services as part of the payment facilitation community.”
