Corner Office Conversations with Martina King
Martina King recently sat down with Melissa Moss, co-chair of The Thread, TSYS' professional development council, to discuss a range of topics on her radar, including the value of data, the power of numbers, staying agile and lessons from the dot-com bust.
King recently read that only eight percent of CEOs in the financial services industry were female. A rather gloomy stat pulled from a 2016 Oliver Wyman study, the research revealed how far away the fintech industry is from true gender inclusion – for half the world's population.
As CEO of Featurespace and one of PaymentSource's Most Influential Women in Payments for 2018, King acknowledges her status as an outlier. With extensive experience in media technology, including leadership roles at Aurasma, Yahoo! Europe and Capital Radio, she's catapulted from one accomplishment to another as a powerful female leader. Yet, she also strives to leave the door open behind her for even more women and underrepresented groups to follow in her footsteps.
