Wikipedia, the world’s largest online encyclopaedia, has approved an entry for the ATM Industry Association at the beginning of the association’s 20th year.
“This entry in Wikipedia is a fitting way to mark ATMIA’s two decades of history-making work,” commented ATMIA’s Founding Director, Tom Harper, who is President and CEO of Networld Media Group. “Kudos to Mike Lee, his staff and so many others that have made the association such a critical driver of the ATM industry.”
Co-author with Harper of “Cash Box: The Invention and Globalization of the ATM”, Professor Bernardo Batiz-Lazo, the world’s leading ATM historian, explained the significance of this acknowledgement by Wikipedia: "The wiki entry corroborates the ATM Industry Association's reputation and its successes in proactively representing its members' interests across the globe through its first 20 years of existence."
“What a way to kick-start our anniversary!” added Mike Lee, CEO of ATMIA. “Our on-going public and industry role has been recognized by an important voice of authority.”
ATMIA is a global non-profit trade association with over 8,000 members in 66 countries. Founded in 1997, it has members in all sectors of the ATM and cash industries.
