CEO Quincy McKnight Announces Bid For U.S. Congress

Quincy J. McKnight, CEO and Candidate for Congress

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Quincy J. McKnight, Founder and CEO of local fintech company, Covenant Pay Partners, made his formal declaration of candidacy last Thursday evening for Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District.

In a departure from the negative rhetoric so prevalent in politics both locally and nationally, McKnight offered a positive message of achievement and shared values, crediting his Middle Tennessee roots and adoptive parents for teaching him he could be successful despite all odds, saying “nobody sets your limits”, and “nobody sets your boundaries.”

As McKnight begins his bid to represent Nashville and the rest of the 5th District, company co-founder and President Daniel F. Percey II continues to take on a larger role. “Dan has been an important part of the Covenant Pay team since the beginning”, McKnight said. “[Percey] has built a team and process which assures me the company we founded is in good hands”, he said.

As company President, Percey is responsible for the day-to-day operations and says “nothing has changed.” Pointing to the company’s continued growth in revenues, profitability, and high customer retention, Percey says “we will continue our mission to provide visibility, control, and efficiency to our clients as we help them harness the true power of payment processing.” Percey also made it a point to say “Quincy’s political life does not impact how or whom we serve.” He continued, “we value all people, all business, and believe we are truly stronger together.”
