Chris Mills is the CEO of GreenHouse Payments Solutions, LLC. He has been offering payment processing solutions to the Cannabis Industry since 2009 and is recognized as a leader in this field. He is a member of the NCIA (National Cannabis Industry Association), the MJBA (Marijuana Business Association), and the Better Business Bureau. He has been interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, Phoenix Business Journal, KOAATV News, Under30CEO, and is an Anchor Advisor for Sensi Magazine. Chris keeps up with the latest news and trends concerning the problems facing the Cannabis Industry in regards to payment processing by attending the major Cannabis Industry forums, events, and conferences. He maintains close, personal relationships with Industry leaders such as Denver Relief, prominent Dispensary owners, and Banking officials around the country. Also, being located in Colorado helps Chris keep his pulse on all the latest happenings in this industry. The corporate office is located a half a block from historic Union Station in Downtown Denver.
Working with International Businesses, Engineers and Entrepreneurs, Chris has been instrumental in helping to introduce new technology to the Cannabis Industry, such as The GreenBox. This is an advanced automatic dispensing machine for dispensing products to customers and clients. Now, a Medical Dispensary or Recreational Shop can cut down the waiting time for their customers as well as increase the productivity of their staff.
Chris Mills entered the payment processing business after spending 16 years in the Hospitality Industry. There, he mastered all the various departments that make a modern hotel run efficiently and profitably. Chris authored Standard Operating and Procedure Manuals for hotels such as Hyatt Hotels and John Q Hammons. As a result of his efforts, national recognition and awards were granted to his departments over the years. Chris also was in charge of opening several new hotels around the country and the experience he gained in this field has translated over into the running of GreenHouse Payment Solutions, LLC. Chris has stated, “My 16 years’ experience in the Hospitality Field has inspired the drive to provide a strong operation and customer service mind set”.
Customer Service is the most important aspect of GreenHouse Payment Solutions, LLC. today. His company has continued to experience steady growth by treating his clients fair and providing honest services in this volatile payment processing environment. Chris believes that his business is “grassroots” and is geared to helping the individual Dispensary or MMJ Clinic to overcome their payment processing problems. There are always companies out there that make promises to solve payment problems with short term solutions that result in shut downs and disappointments. Systems such as load systems (loyalty cards), virtual banking, off-shore credit cards, etc., that even though may be legitimate, often are complex and soon fade away.
Chris says, “We do not offer any “Smoking Mirrors” – only “for real” payment systems that work, period! – We are here to stay.”
