Todd M. Ablowitz
Todd Ablowitz is a recognized and respected industry leader with nearly 20 years of experience working for the acquiring and payments industry’s top brands. He was the earliest and loudest evangelist for the payment facilitator model, predicting in 2011 that it represented the future of payment acceptance. Investors, analysts and industry watchers frequently rely on him for expert advice, trend insights and consulting on payments and payments innovations.
In 2008, he launched Double Diamond Group (DDG) to help companies all over the world solve their most critical business challenges with his unique blend of experience, connections and know-how. In 2011 DDG began serving the Payment Facilitator (PF) industry from soup to nuts, covering strategy, new product/market introduction, operations design, implementation and risk compliance, and due diligence. Double Diamond Group has helped more than 150 companies in every region of the world in the PF space.
In 2014 Todd took his belief in the Payment Facilitator model to the next level, founding Infinicept – a suite of automated services that collectively perform as an operational backbone for Payment Facilitators. More simply put, a payment facilitator in a box. In early 2017, Infinicept launched to rave reviews. He is also Founder and Publisher of PaymentFacilitator.com an online weekly that provides the PF community with weekly news, analysis and insight.
On the weekends, you can find Todd hitting the slopes around the world, or on the rare occasion he is unable to find snow – dreaming about it. In 2015, Todd combined his passion for skiing with his passion for FinTech and started SkiTech, a convening of FinTech leaders that gives participants an industry edge in an incredible setting.
Todd grew up in Upstate New York, attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, and resides outside of Denver with his wife, Heidi and his two Children, Hannah (11) and Ben (8).
