EVAN SCHUMAN

Evan Schuman is the Editor-in-Chief of PaymentFacilitators.com and is a longtime payments journalist.

Perhaps best known as the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the retail IT media outlet StorefrontBacktalk for seven years, Schuman has served as the senior VP/content at PYMNTS.com as well as a reporter for PaymentsSource, Retail Executive Digest (RED), RISNews, Consumer Goods Technology, VentureBeat and HealthcareITNews. He’s also a columnist for Computerworld and has written weekly columns for CBSNews.com and RetailWeek.

His coverage of IT issues goes back to the late 80s, when he spent 11 years in various editorial management roles at CMP Media, including News Editor for InformationWeek, TechWeb and Unix Today, editor-at-large for CommunicationsWeek, editor of The Internet Business Report and editorial director for CMP customer publishing.

Before that, his byline was found covering legal affairs, politics, the economy, Wall Street and technology issues for The New York Times, USA Today, Philadelphia Inquirer, Reuters, Baltimore Sun, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Detroit News, the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner and various other media outlets. He voiced reports for various national news broadcasts—including National Public Radio’s All Things Consider, CBS Radio News, ABC Radio News, NBC Radio News, AP Radio and the Canadian Broadcasting Company—which is why he today heads up PaymentFacilitator.com’s podcasts and webcasts.

Named one of the top 10 most influential online journalists by Marketing Computers magazine, an independent trade publication for technology marketers, Schuman has been quoted on payments and technology issues in the The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Time, The Washington Post, MSNBC, Forbes, American Banker, BusinessWeek, The Register, CNET, CNN, The Boston Globe, USA Today, Wired, International Business Times, U.S. News & World Report, Consumer Reports, the San Francisco Chronicle, PCMagazine, the Los Angeles Times and Business Insider, among others.
