EFTA also cited McDonnell’s leadership of the company as it expanded the options for payment solutions for merchants after TNS acquired some of the assets of U.S. Wireless Data. McDonnell is also a founder of EFTA, having served as a director for the National Commission on EFT. He also serves as an EFTA director and is a past chairman of the organization. EFTA was founded in 1977 as an inter-industry trade association with the primary goal of advancing the development and acceptance of electronic payments and commerce.
