Episode 184 – Talking ACH with Michael Herd, Nacha

We talk about ACH a lot at Glenbrook (even coining the phrase “ACH is Hot”) and there’s a reason for that. More than 29 billion ACH Network payments were made in 2021, valued at close to $73 trillion. While ACH technology has been around for decades, modernization has made this system virtually unrecognizable from what existed in the 1970’s, and it continues to evolve. 

In this episode of Payments on Fire®, George Peabody and Yvette Bohanan are joined by Michael Herd, Senior Vice President of ACH Network Administration at Nacha. In the conversation, Mike walks us through the state of ACH, insights on volume and growth, and new Nacha operating rules.
