Joining an Extensive Roster of Expertise
The need for innovative, forward-thinking leadership is essential for efficiency and security in payments, an industry which Eaton-Cardone says is evolving at an unprecedented pace. As she explains:
“In the blink of an eye, we’ve evolved into a global economy, with consumers all over the world unified by the Internet. Only through innovation and collaboration will we be able to help consumers and merchants buy and sell their goods and services safely, quickly and free from fraud.”
For years, Eaton-Cardone has been sought out by the industry’s most prominent figures for guidance and expertise. Her unrelenting commitment to innovation and standardization has positioned her as an obvious leader for such a prestigious organization as the Emerging Payments Association.
At the helm of Europe’s first chargeback management company, Monica has demonstrated a consistent commitment to the vision of an integrated and collaborative future for eCommerce. This latest appointment to the EPA advisory board will help further Global Risk Technologies’ goal of standardization, security, and fairness across the payments industry.
Tony Craddock, Director General of the Emerging Payments Association remarked, “We are delighted to have Monica Eaton-Cardone join our advisory board. Her limitless expertise in this area will help drive growth and shape the industry.”
In Monica’s own words, “I look forward to working with my colleagues in the industry to ensure the continued growth of eCommerce and the implementation of banking policies that protect fair trade.”
