Atlanta CEO

From Negative EBITDA to $43B Exit


Our August 2019 CEO dinner was held at the delicious Fogo de Chāo – Brazilian Steakhouse!

At this dinner, 45 Atlanta CEOs who run later-stage, recurring revenue and product companies represented over $2 billion in valuation.

We offer our sincere thanks to the keynote speaker and valued ACEO board member, Asif Ramji. Here is Asif’s extraordinary acquisition journey as CEO of Paymetric:

  1. 2017 Paymetric acquisition by Vantiv at $550 million (CEO)
  2. 2017 Vantiv acquisition of WorldPay at $11.3 billion (C-Suite)
  3. 2018 State Bank acquisition by Cadence at $1.5 billion (Board)
  4. 2019 FIS acquisition of WorldPay at $43 billion (C-Suite)
We look forward to seeing you at our next dinner in September. Keep scaling!
