Dennis Simmons, CEO of Dallas-Based SWACHA Honored for His Service to the Electronic Payments Industry

Simmons Received “Distinguished Service Award” at National PAYMENTS Conference

Dallas, TX, April 10, 2014 --( Dennis Simmons, the longtime CEO of Dallas-based SWACHA, was honored yesterday for his many years of service dedicated to the support of the country’s ACH Network. SWACHA is one of the largest not-for-profit electronic payments associations in the country.

Simmons, 65, received the “Distinguished Service Award” at the Chairperson’s Leadership Reception at the 2014 annual PAYMENTS conference in Orlando, FL., hosted by NACHA.

“Today we are honoring an individual who has been an active volunteer and ardent supporter of the ACH Network and NACHA—and who at times is mistaken as a member of the NACHA staff for his level of involvement in programs and committees across both the Network and Association areas of NACHA,” said Pat Thelen, CTP, NACHA Board Chairperson and executive vice president at UMB Bank, N.A.

Simmons is an 18-year veteran of SWACHA and has led the organization since 2001. He has served as a NACHA board member and chaired the Electronic Check Council, Government Relations Advisory Committee, and Risk Management Advisory Group. Additionally, he has served both as member of the Board of Regents and faculty of The Payments Institute, and chaired the Association Executives’ Leadership Forum of the regional payment associations.

Simmons was also a founding member of the board of directors of the Secure Remote Payment Council and a member of the Faculty and Advisory Council of the Bank Operations Institute at Southern Methodist University. He also has served as a member of the Executive Education Advisory Council of the University of Texas at Dallas.

SWACHA-The Electronic Payments Resource®, is one of the largest not-for-profit regional payments associations in the country with approximately 1,000 members across the Southwest. SWACHA is the resource of choice for financial institutions and corporations in the areas of education, training, payments system risks and knowledge about electronic payments.
