We are a payments strategy consulting firm that provides an objective ecosystem-level perspective. Our clients come to us for strategy advisory, often in the early stages of thinking about a critical payments problem. We serve our clients on a project or ad hoc advisory basis.

Our Strengths

  • Decades of strategic experience give us a deep understanding of how messages and money flow across the payments value chain, by use case and by market.
  • Glenbrook is agile in our approach to help you. We can provide candid, short-term advisory on a particular topic or execute against a multi-month, multi-phase consulting project.

Recent Engagements

  • Glenbrook created a 5-year strategic plan for the management and Board of Directors of a major card processor and digital banking provider. The planning process included detailed scenario analysis and facilitation of an interactive strategic decisioning process by the Board. As a result, the company has undertaken both a strategically-focused acquisition program in its core business and a major new product development initiative to position it in critical new growth segments. The client adopted Glenbrook’s 8 principles of what matters to large merchants, and used this as input for an outside company to create a refreshed set of marketing and sales material with the goal to create a new comprehensive marketing campaign to rebuild an image as a viable, “modern” offering to its intended audience.  
  • Glenbrook provides part-time CEO services for the global industry association, developing rulebooks and an interoperability Framework for the cross-border exchange of ACH and instant payments, new member development and thought leadership.
