US Alliance Group, Inc. (USAG) announced another award today after securing a spot on the 2019 Orange County Business Journals list of Fastest Growing Private Companies. As the nation’s leading merchant payment processing organization, this year’s list marks more than a decade of notice for USAG, Electronic Cash Systems (ECS), Alternative Payments International LLC. (API), and Precision Payments International (PPI) on the OCBJ’s Fastest-Growing. USAG’s executives, including Vice President of Finance, Caroline Rutenbar, say it’s not only their safe and secure suite of payment processing products responsible for the year-over-year growth, but also an innovative line including PINless Debit and Bitcoin Processing that offers employees the chance to innovate. “It’s an exciting time to be a part of USAG and its family of companies because as we continue to expand our brand and portfolio, we as employees also have the opportunity to build our professional skills and industry knowledge,” said Rutenbar.
The Orange County Business Journal’s annual list of fastest-growing privately held companies is a special report that features private companies whose annual sales grew rapidly from mid-2017 to mid-2019. Orange County-based companies owned by an individual, a group of people, families, venture capitalists, private equity firms or other investors qualify. Companies like USAG appearing on the annual list are known for a wide range of distinctions including technology solutions and entrepreneurism.

We are given a lot of opportunities to push ourselves and be a part of the growth of the company. The variety in the ‘family of companies’ provides excitement day in and day out. There’s never a dull moment,” Rutenbar said.
