Andy Schacht

As a Director of Commercial Payments Advisor, Andy serves government clients and strives to be a reliable consultant who removes barriers to success. He starts by developing key relationships within each publicly funded entity, to learn the organization’s needs and challenges. He then devises solutions that streamline their payments and cash management processes, allowing each client to do what they do best: provide essential services to their communities.


Andy’s early career began in banking as a teller. He quickly moved into a role as appraisal analyst before taking a position within the Illinois State Treasurer’s Office. There, he helped develop metrics to improve operational efficiency and directed both the local government investment pool and merchant services program.

Andy holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois Springfield and is an Electronic Transactions Association Certified Payments Professional.


Beyond his work with government clients and public service programs, Andy enjoys spending time with his wife and son. He is also passionate about staying active and is often hiking or taking part in other forms of exercise.

"Public institutions are often tasked with doing more with less, and I take great pride in helping them find the solutions that best serve their constituents."
