Boomtown CEO, Alfred 'Chip' Kahn wins 2016 Mike P. Duffy Leadership Award from


We're excited to share that our very own CEO and Founder, Alfred 'Chip' Kahn IV, was awarded the Mike P. Duffy Leadership award, an accolade honoring the entrepreneurial spirit of the late Chase Paymentech executive Mike Duffy, who passed away in 2013 shortly before the first Innovation Project.

Chip has been a leader in the payments industry throughout his career. He founded and ran four payments & tech companies prior to launching Boomtown, which provides technical support services and software to businesses across the US.

The award was presented to Chip on March 17, 2016, at the 2016 Payments Innovation Awards ceremony, which took place at Harvard University during the Innovation Project 2016 conference. The Innovation Project is a content-driven discussion on the state of innovation in payments and commerce and it brings together the most meaningful minds, emerging disruptors and entrepreneurial visionaries across the industry for two days.
