Dustin is the definition of a workaholic. Up late at night and awake early in the mornings, Dustin is always working on something. Having been born to a family of serial entrepreneurs, Dustin saw first hand what it takes to run a successful business. Having watched his families’ businesses struggle to understand the merchant processing industry he realized that most business owners don’t understand their merchant statements and as a result are being taken advantage with unfair fees.
Dustin is a core believer and founder in PayBright’s code of ‘Merchant Services Done Right’, a guarantee to maintain 100% fair and ethical standards with each and every merchant through total transparency, no early termination fees and no rate increases, ever. Dustin graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Economics from Furman University, South Carolina in 2015. While a student at Furman, Dustin was a distinguished member of a top ranked Mock Trial Team, a treasurer for the Student Government Organization as well as a member of the Riley Institute Advanced Team. Working full time, Dustin helped launch PayBright as a full-time student and under his leadership the company has grown exponentially and now has sales teams in Florida, South Carolina, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Colorado. For fun Dustin can be found enjoying the great outdoors hiking with his dog, sky diving from 10,000 feet out of a perfectly good plane or simply relaxing at home.
