Digital Banking Veterans Join i2c Leadership Team

Global digital banking firm i2c Inc. is rounding out its leadership team to include four payments industry veterans, the company said in a press release on Wednesday (Sept. 4).

Leaders added to the team include former Visa executives Janet Monroe, Ava Kelly, Nikki Waters and Steve Gray.

Monroe will serve as head of global client success and has more than 20 years of payments and client service experience. She formerly held executive leadership positions at Visa Inc. and iPayment (now Paysafe).

Kelly joins i2c as head of global products. She has held executive leadership positions at both Visa Inc. and American Express.

Heading up i2c’s global marketing team is Waters, who comes from executive leadership positions held at Fiserv, Visa Inc. and STAR (a First Data company).

Gray joins the company as head of fraud and risk solutions. He has held leadership positions at Visa, Socure, Best Buy, Mastercard and HNC/FICO.

“These individuals have deep knowledge of the payments industry and are committed to [being] the best in the industry. Because of this, I am excited about having them on my team to help execute i2c’s strategic goals and objectives,” said Amir Wain, founder and CEO of i2c Inc.

“With passion and dedication to creating an exceptional client experience from all team members, i2c will continue to advance its leadership position by providing unrivaled digital banking and payments solutions around the globe,” he added.

Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Silicon Valley, the company has a multi-function payments and digital banking platform with “building block” processing technology. It offers a suite of credit, debit and prepaid solutions on a single global SaaS platform.

Executive Vice President of i2c Global Sales Joe DeRosa said financial institutions of all sizes are embracing corporate credit products because it is in their long-run competitive and financial best interests to do so.

“Many of these FIs report that 60 percent of their total revenues are coming from corporate credit products, so obviously they are key to their strategy,” he said. “The question is whether they have the systems and processes in place to develop, launch and scale those products.”
