Tomlinson, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of TSYS. “TSYS Merchant Solutions positions TSYS for further growth in the acquiring industry.”FNMS was ranked as the 10th-largest merchant acquirer in the U.S. by dollar volume in 2009 and includes more than 300,000 active merchant outlets in its diverse portfolio.
