It has since become standard of the Bank Charge Card industry. He had the support of President Lewis A. Shea, a former Federal Chief Bank Examiner who always looked for new banking fields to conquer.

During his 40 year career in banking, he was employed by the Connecticut National Bank, Hartford National Bank and later the First Jersey National Bank (now Bank of America, ) where he took over the Consumer Loan Departments and upgraded systems bringing profitability to the operations. He served as a member of the Interbank Operations Committee; Director and Chairman of the Board of Eastern States Bankcard Association; founding Chairman of Eastern States Monetary Services which processed VISA credit cards; Secretary of the Fairfield County Bankers Association; Chairman of the Installment Credit Committee, Connecticut Bankers Assn and later Chairman of the Installment Credit Committee, New Jersey Bankers Assn. He instructed in bank card schools and gave lectures on Charge Card and Consumer Loan operations to numerous credit groups. throughout the country.
He retired from Fleet Bank , now Bank of America (New Jersey) in January 1987 and moved to New Bern, North Carolina where he lives at The Courtyards at Berne Village, 2701 Amhurst Blvd. Apt 9-C, New Bern, NC 28562. Telephone 252-672-8126
