Ed Hopper grew up a “Navy Brat” and proud of it! They traveled the world which helped shape the way he looks at life. Ed and his family have called Virginia Beach home for over 35 years.
Ed is the CEO of Altor Processing Systems, founded in 1999. In January 2018, he led his company in a new direction. They launched Altor/50 and now donate half of their net profits to over 15 charities. Ed says “We can usually help merchants save money and help charities at the same time. It’s a Win/Win!”
Ed spends his free time in the summer as a Supervisor for Virginia Beach Lifesaving Service and is a previous member of the Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad. He sits on the executive board for both the Virginia Beach Minority Business Council and the Virginia Beach Surf and Rescue Museum.
