New Era Dawns at TASC

Cliff Mason

TASC President Cliff Mason

April marks the beginning of a new period in the history of TASC. On April 6, our new President, Cliff Mason, joined the corporation. I can’t begin to express how excited we are to add Cliff’s talent and experience to the TASC leadership team. He brings additional capacity and different capabilities to TASC, which will help us continue to grow as we set the course for our next 40 years.

Mason comes to TASC from Swift Exchange, LLC. As Executive Vice President of Payment Technologies, Mason led multiple teams focused on facilitating Swift’s strategy for in-store payments with enterprise merchants in North America. Mason brings more than 25 years of experience in financial services, including payments networks and services. He has extensive expertise in ACH, card, check, credit, debit, prepaid, and alternative systems of payment such as via internet/mobile.

In addition, Mason’s experience includes working in sales for an emerging payments technology company (that was acquired by Google), and helping to create and manage a company with revenues that grew from $5 million to over $70 million today.

As was evident during the interview process—and has continued to be the case during his first few weeks at TASC—Cliff and I have great synergy. We both envision a future wherein we’re working in concert to drive operational excellence AND steer our strategic course. Cliff is in the process of settling in; these first 100 days will be fast paced for him.  Having moved from Columbus, Georgia, he and his wife, Marsha, are also settling in to the Madison community.

Please help me welcome Cliff Mason to TASC!  I hope many of you will have the opportunity to work with Cliff in the near and ongoing future.
