Trinity Merchant Group Location & Ownership
Trinity Merchant Group is headquartered at 2421 W 7th St #105, Fort Worth, Texas 76107, and is a registered ISO/MSP of Fifth Third Bank, Cincinnati, Ohio. Clay Farrell is listed as the owner of Trinity Merchant Group. Nathan Randel has also been listed as the owner of Trinity Merchant Group, but his public profiles now state that he is a managing partner at Clientvine, LLC.
