Robert Carr

Founder, Heartland Payment Systems

From his start as an idealistic entrepreneur operating on a shoestring, Carr founded Heartland Payments Systems, one of the nation's largest debit and credit card transaction companies. He also earned a national reputation as a trailblazer for ethical reform of the payments industry. He led Heartland from a modest start-up with 25 employees in 1997 to a FORTUNE 1000 company that employs 4,100 colleagues and serves more than 400,000 business and educational locations nationwide. After a remarkable recovery from the 2008 international hacking conspiracy, Heartland emerged as a champion in the fight against cybercrime. The company's Merchant Bill of Rights has been lauded for its transparency in payments processing. Carr is the founder of the Give Something Back Foundation, which provides financial support to college students. He is the author of, "Through the Fires: An American Business Story of Turbulence, Triumph and Giving Back (Amazon, 2014)."
