Fintech leader named by Inc. Magazine as one of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Inc. Magazine announced the Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent entrepreneurs. YapStone was ranked on the Inc. 5000 list for the 9th consecutive year. Only a small fraction of the nation’s companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent high growth, making YapStone an Inc. 5000 Honor Roll Honoree – a rare achievement.

The Fintech leader, known for powering payments for global marketplaces and large vertical markets, has become a magnet for elite technology talent – adding seasoned executives from PayPal, Salesforce, and Twitter to its ever-growing team. With over 360 full time employees in multiple California (Bay Area and Santa Monica) offices, YapStone most recently expanded its international operations to a 16,000 square-foot office in Drogheda, Ireland.

“Being ranked on the Inc. 5000 list for the 9th consecutive year is quite an achievement for our company,” says Tom Villante, YapStone’s Co-founder, Chairman and CEO. “Our consistent and accelerating growth of the past 5 years can only be attributed to a talented and diverse group of payments experts, who are truly committed to our customer’s success and our mission to change how the world pays. I could not be more proud of our entire team.”

With an expanding payments platform, innovative payment technologies and cutting-edge customer onboarding features, as well as multiple new marketplace partnerships, YapStone projects to surpass $16 billion in total payment processing volume in the coming year.
