Welcome New Members
We are happy to welcome a number of new members this month.
Christina Robinette grew up in Sunland-Tujunga where her parents owned a small business. She came to learn that in the credit card processing world, there are “a lot of sharks out there.” She became an account executive for Elite Merchant Services and now helps businesses of all sizes bring their credit card rates down. She joined the Chamber because she believes in a community where business owners help each other out.
“It keeps the business environment healthy,” said Robinette. Christina can be reached at (818) 503-4545, ext. 201 or www.EliteDataCorp.com.
