Giving Back

Numbers are meaningful, but community is in our hearts

Premier Merchants Group’s “meat and potatoes” is processing payments. In 2016 alone, we processed 4,340,045 transactions totaling a volume of $184,713,860.

However, we also enjoy giving back. Over the last 12 months, Premier employees have proudly volunteered over 1,000 hours coaching high school wrestlers, and company president Kurt Karjalainen volunteers his time coaching youth soccer and wrestling.

Premier is proud to give back to communities. It’s also proud of its employees in their ability to not only find time to volunteer, but do it without compromising one of our best features — customer service!
