Riverside Payments would like to take this time to introduce and give a huge shout out to another key performer this year, Justin Gurtner. Justin started his career with Riverside Payments in October 2016 and has been with us over 2 fantastic years. Justin stated, “Riverside is the best company. From every single person I work with daily, I feel like I am making a difference in the world and people’s lives.”
After college, Justin joined the Army because he had a passion for helping others. He received a medical discharge for an eye condition and moved onto other opportunities. After his time with the military, he found himself jumping from paycheck to paycheck. He was good at everything he tried, but felt like there was a ceiling to everything he did. He wanted more, and not only more but wanted better for his family. Justin was soon in transition. It was on Indeed that he would see an ad and forever change the course of his success. His youngest son, Taylor, wasn’t born yet. He and his beautiful wife, Alison, were 2 months behind on car payments. Credit card debt and student loans loomed over their heads. Justin immediately saw the benefit from potentially unlimited earnings.
Justin began his career as an Account Executive. With his wife’s support and the support from everyone at Riverside; Amie, Brandon, Jeremy, Phil and all of his peers guiding and laying the foundation for success, Justin has reached career heights and goals. He credits listening to all of their advice and being able to accept criticism as key factors in his success. Justin stated that lately, they have been revisiting their ‘whys’. For him this is the first time in his own career that he is now making goals and he can’t get enough of it!
Justin is now jumping into the role of Corporate Trainer. He has his eyes set on being the best Director of Training he can be. He is ready for all opportunities that come his way. Justin hopes to eventually run his own office with Riverside Payments. With his new position transitioning to a manager, he is now able to take care of merchants but still train and show others how to find their own success and provide amazing savings and service to our business owners. Justin is known for his outstanding reviews and relationships with our customers. He goes above and beyond for every single client of his and has been an absolute asset to our Riverside family. It will be a true benefit for our new team of Account Executives to be lead with his phenomenal experience, qualities and knowledge.
Justin’s wife, Alison, is a highly talented school psychologist and has been his beacon of support and inspiration along his career. He now has two handsome sons, Taylor and Luke. “Without their constant support and love, the demands of being an Account Executive can get to you,” Justin stated. Justin credits them with his success and continues to push himself for their futures.
Justin leaves us with this sound advice, “Follow the system. It’s there for a reason.”
We commend you, Justin, for a job well done! Thank you for everything you bring to our Riverside family!
