I started my career as a muni bond analyst, became a financial journalist, and moved into payments consulting. Now I work for a financial services trade association to promote a regulatory environment that promotes both consumer protection and innovation in financial services.
There is a tremendous benefit to meeting industry leaders to work toward a shared goal of simplifying rules and protecting consumers.
The goal for both groups should be to create a new framework that benefits everyone.
Management transitions can be tricky, so it's important to have a plan in place when a senior staff member makes their exit.
The Innovative Payments Association ("IPA") is a trade organization that serves as the leading voice of the electronic payments sector, including prepaid products, mobile wallets, and person-to-person (P2P) technology for consumers, businesses, and governments at all levels. The IPA's goal is to encourage efficient use of electronic payments, cultivate financial inclusion through educating and empowering consumers, represent the industry before legislative and regulatory bodies, and provide thought leadership.
