Suneera Madhani

Founder & CEO, Fattmerchant

Suneera Madhani is a payments and technology innovator who has catapulted her business idea from startup to $8B — disrupting the payments ecosystem as we know it.

Before founding Fattmerchant in 2014, Madhani held a variety of successful positions, one being with a larger merchant services provider. After seeing the need for transparency and a better payment experience for merchants, her entrepreneurial spirit took hold and she decided to solve the problem herself. She built a company from the ground up that provided a sophisticated and merchant-friendly platform, coupled with the best experience to customers through transparency and award-winning customer service. Fattmerchant has revolutionized the payments landscape — challenging the status quo with its transparent, subscription-based model and unifying the payments experience through the development of an integrated payments platform.

Under Madhani’s strategic leadership, Fattmerchant has grown exponentially over just 5 years; attaining triple-digit growth year after year, scaling operations in multiple cities across the United States, raising more than $100M in venture capital, and hiring over 100 employees. Madhani is hyper-focused on fostering Fattmerchant’s thriving culture that fosters purposefulness, growth, and inclusion. Fattmerchant has won multiple best places to work awards, including Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2018 Top Company Cultures and as a Top Entrepreneurial Company in America. Fattmerchant was also most recently recognized by U.S. News and World Report as the best credit card processor of 2020, in addition to its inclusion on Deloitte’s 2019 Technology Fast 500, the 2020 Inc. 500 list, and the 2020 Forbes Fintech 50.
