LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Dec. 11, 2017) – Payment Alliance International (PAI), the nation’s largest privately-held ATM provider, today announced it has been named 2017 Business of the Year by Louisville Business First. PAI was honored for demonstrating business excellence, market leadership, and community involvement during a gala dinner and awards program held at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel the evening of Dec. 5. PAI co-founders John J. Leehy, III and Gregory W. Sahrmann accepted the award on behalf of PAI in the very large company category.
