FinTech Magazine is proud to introduce the Top 100 Women in FinTech, a celebration of groundbreaking and influential women in the vanguard of the industry.

As well as recognising the outstanding achievements of individual women, the Top 100 celebrates the contributions of all women working in fintech around the world. 

"Now more than ever, women are playing crucial roles in these vital industries", says Stacy Norman, Chief Operating Officer at FinTech Magazine publisher BizClik Media Group. "These sectors are undergoing a digital transformation and women are leading the way."

From today, we’re inviting our digital community to nominate their colleagues and partners - women who play leading roles in pushing boundaries, increasing financial inclusion through technology, and steering the finance industry through its biggest shift in recent memory. 

Nominees from all corners of our global digital community are welcomed and encouraged, from the board rooms of the biggest fintech organisations, to innovators in nimble startups, and enterprises redressing imbalances and promoting change in emerging, often underserved, markets.

Meet the Speakers

Each week, from now until the event, we’ll be announcing the latest speakers who are set to grace our physical or virtual stage, prepared to share their knowledge and insight with attendees. 

Our second batch consists of:

 

Scott Abraham

Currently the Senior Vice President of Business Development & Fintech for Mastercard UK & Ireland, a position he’s held since 2014, Abraham describes himself as “a proven and successful senior sales leader with experience across a wide range of industries, sectors, and channels.” 

Graduating from the University of Northampton in 1994 with a BA in Economics and Law, he worked for nine years at Sainsburys - eventually responsible for banking the company’s revenue and running its ATMs - and then Barclaycard for three years as Head of Client Management. In 2007, Abraham became VP of Client Management at American Express, and then VP and GM Global Supplier Relations EMEA in 2012.

In his current role at Mastercard, Abraham is accountable for the acceptance of all payments and products through all channels, devices, and technologies across UK and Ireland. In addition, he oversees the deployment of innovative new payment tech within the region.

 

Alistair Fraser-Hawkins

Fraser-Hawkins’ role as CEO, UK Corporate, at Marsh McLennan is the continuation of a long and successful insurance career, which has included being London Sales Director for JLT Group and Branch Director for Willis Towers Watson.

Marsh prides itself on being a company that hires top-tier talent, does work that impacts peoples’ lives, and offers its employees the opportunity to make a difference. This is clearly an attitude that aligns with Fraser-Hawkins’ own values; regarding the insurer’s UK Young Professionals initiative, a support network to help young professionals in their development, he said:

"I am passionate about developing talent and our Young Professional CRG provides a brilliant community for our Young Professional colleagues to discuss key issues relevant early in their careers, as well as an environment to promote the skills, learning and network for success."

 

Mike Massaro

Massaro is currently the CEO of Boston fintech Flywire, a role he took on in 2013. He first joined the team in 2012 as VP of Business Development, but it wasn’t long before his entrepreneurial skills were redirected to leading the entire company’s high-growth strategy worldwide.

An expert in domestic and international payments and billing, enterprise technology sales, strategic alliances, enterprise software, SaaS, product management and marketing, and much more, Massaro is a consummate finance professional whose credentials befit the leadership of a prominent global payments fintech.

His previous positions include Consultant at PwC and Product Line Manager at Oracle, and he maintains a Mentor role at startup accelerator MassChallenge. He graduated magna cum laude from Babson College with a BS in Information Systems and Finance.

 

This event is set to be one of the year's most unmissable. If you want to get leading perspectives on the future of fintech and insurtech, go to Eventbrite and purchase your tickets now.
