Givens will head the Payment Solutions Group responsible for global payment execution across enVista’s client base, including all payment products, such as development, execution, services and information reporting.
Givens joins enVista’s Transportation Solutions Group from JPMorgan Chase to provide unmatched expertise to clients who leverage enVista’s market-leading freight audit and payment (FAP) solution. enVista annually processes 500 million unique shipments and manages $11 billion in spend across 5,000 global carriers. Its comprehensive FAP solution includes transportation invoice auditing and automation, BI & analytics, and payment processing to fully optimize freight spend and financial processes.

Givens’ expertise provides enVista clients with added protection to their FAP activities.

Givens said, “I am honored and eager to join enVista as VP, payment solutions. With my more than a decade of experience in payment strategies, I understand the nuances and critical nature of freight audit and payment practices for enVista’s clients. I look forward to leading a team that provides an extra source of expertise for enVista’s clients to further ensure they not only benefit from their FAP solutions with significant cost savings, but that their FAP capabilities become competitive differentiators.”
Jim Barnes, enVista CEO, added, “Alvin’s addition to the team was highly strategic. His level of regulatory experience and cross-industry payments expertise is something most players in the space don’t offer and positions enVista ahead of the competition. enVista’s freight audit and payment solution includes our market-leading BI and analytics engine that delivers a holistic view of transportation activity across a shipper’s network and highlights important opportunities for cost savings and service improvements.”
