LOUISVILLE, KY-- Payment Alliance International, the nation's largest privately-held ATM provider, has been named 2017 Business of the Year by the local publication Louisville Business First. PAI was honored for demonstrating business excellence, market leadership and community involvement during a gala dinner and awards program held at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel on Dec. 5.  PAI cofounders John J. Leehy, III and Gregory W. Sahrmann accepted the award on behalf of PAI in the very large company category.

"Throughout the years, PAI has been blessed with a talented team of committed employees and some of the most loyal customers found anywhere," said Leehy. "It is their hard work and dedication which serves as the real foundation for PAI's impressive run of growth and success."

The event organizers explained that the Business of the Year awards and gala help celebrate the accomplishments of companies who make Greater Louisville an exciting place to do business. Business First honors finalists and winners in six categories – very large company, large company, medium company, small company, emerging company and nonprofit, plus an individual for leadership excellence. Readers nominate dozens of companies, with Business First's editors narrowing the list to three worthy finalists per category. Ultimately, an independent outside panel of judges determines Business of the Year winners for each category.

PAI is the nation's largest privately held ATM provider offering processing and maintenance services, equipment sales and support as well as ATM branding opportunities. PAI also provides value-added solutions and customized partner programs aimed at increasing profitability, reducing operational expenses and maximizing uptime.
