Electronic Commerce Pioneer Pete Kight of Fiserv, Inc.
Receives 2008 Ellis Island Medal of Honor

“Peter J. Kight, vice chairman of Fiserv, Inc., was among this year’s recipients of the Ellis Island Medal of Honor presented by the National Ethnic Coalition (NECO) on May 10th in New York City. The Ellis Island Medal of Honor is awarded to outstanding Americans who have distinguished themselves as citizens of the United States and have enabled their ancestry groups to maintain their identities while becoming integral parts of American life. Kight founded CheckFree, the electronic payment company in 1981, and was its CEO until Fiserv acquired CheckFree in December 2007.”
