Randy Modos

President and Founder of PayJunction

Randy Modos is the president and a founder of PayJunction, where he provides vision and leadership for the company as it pioneers green payment technology and delivers operational efficiencies for businesses. Entrepreneurship started early for Modos, who spent his after-school hours as a child selling everything from lemonade and artwork to wooden sculptures. Bringing this inclination to college, Modos met his co-founders at UCSB while pursuing his bachelor of science in computer science.

Together, the founders of PayJunction took an inspired idea and grew it into a company that process over $4 billion annually. But it’s one thing to create a world-class product, it’s another to leverage your core beliefs into a revolutionary approach. PayJunction is a leader in ethical payment processing and prioritizes long-term relationships over short-term profit. Modos has been a champion of this approach over PayJunction’s 18 years in business.

Today, PayJunction operates two offices with 100 employees in Santa Barbara, supports 3,000 sales reps across the United States, and builds and supports all of its products in house. Engineering is still at the heart of what PayJunction builds: innovative technology that streamlines businesses’ payment processing and reduces the environmental toll of an entire industry.
