Sam Levitt, Glenbrook’s first Associate, brings a fresh perspective to the team as well as his excitement, energy, and an endless curiosity and desire to learn about all things payments.

A former intern for Visa’s internal consulting division, Sam is no stranger to the payments industry. During his internship, he assisted with an annual cost-study that measured the overall performance of several Visa issuing banks through the use of a highly evolved benchmarking methodology.

Sam earned his bachelor’s degree at UCLA, studying Economics and Political Science. At UCLA, he became intrigued by the blockchain, more specifically with Bitcoin and its boundless potential. While he purchased his first Bitcoin close to its peak price in 2014—and it has dropped drastically since—he has developed a deeper understanding of the electronic currency.

Sam’s career focus has included the healthcare industry where he most recently worked as an Associate at Triage Consulting Group, a company specializing in identifying systemic payment discrepancies in the hospital revenue cycle. Working for some of the nation’s largest health systems, he developed a keen understanding of the hospital billing process and hopes to one day apply the knowledge and skills he learns at Glenbrook to fix the inefficiencies in the healthcare industry’s back end systems.
