Before joining Succession Capital Partners in 2014, Mr. Anthony was the co-founder of RTP Financial Services, LLC, branded to consumers as PayPartners. Mr. Anthony spent five years turning PayPartners into a market leader in the pay-card category, helping small-to-mid-sized businesses transition to 100% electronic payroll using MasterCard branded debit cards. PayPartners primarily marketed their services to community and regional banks providing various outsourced-treasury services. As one of the first companies to develop a fully-automated online-enrollment tool, PayPartners attracted more than 400 clients and 10,000 cardholders. Mr. Anthony successfully sold the company to TransCard, LLC in 2013.
Before starting PayPartners, Mr. Anthony spent several years as an executive-vice president in charge of Business Development at Co-Advantage Holdings. Co-Advantage provided outsourced human resources, benefit administration and payroll services to small-to-mid-sized business in the Southeast. In 2001, Mr. Anthony co-founded the benefit, risk and enrollment division of Co-Advantage. He quickly grew the division to one of the largest benefit and enrollment providers in the Southeast. The unit was later sold to Digital Insurance.
