Tempo, First Bank & Trust Forge Alliance

To offer affinity debit cards to their customers and members, to use virtually anywhere

Tempo has formed a strategic alliance with First Bank & Trust, a part of South Dakota-based Fishback Financial, for issuance of affinity and co-branded debit cards.

Reportedly, Tempo has introduced a new web-based platform that enables organizations to offer open loop, partner-branded debit cards to customers, contributors and members. Tempo’s platform enables these cards to be linked to cardholders’ pre-existing checking accounts. Additionally, Tempo has launched its first affinity debit card programs with the Breast Cancer Fund, Greenpeace and the Surfrider Foundation.

Mike Grossman, CEO of Tempo, said: “With First Bank & Trust as our partner, we are able to provide a broad range of organizations with the ability to offer affinity debit cards to their customers, contributors or members, for use virtually anywhere.”

Kevin Tetzlaff, president of First Bank & Trust, said: “Tempo’s affinity debit card platform will spur a broad range of new debit card options for consumers. We are always looking for new, innovative ways to enhance our business and we are very excited about our partnership with Tempo.”
