Corporate Spending Innovations (CSI) has announced the promotion of three key executives at their headquarters in Bonita Springs, Florida. The company says that the advancement of these women in FinTech, including Andrea DeBenedictis, chief revenue officer; Gunita Bindra, senior vice president of product and partnerships, and Julie Heffelfinger, senior vice president of strategic operations and marketing, underscores the company’s commitment to empowering women in the FinTech space.
CSI says it is setting a new benchmark for women in FinTech with women representing over half of their leadership team. According to a FinTech census conducted by EY and Innovate Finance in September 2017, women represent just 29% of staff in the sector, equating to seven out of 10 employees that are men. Globally, only 8% of FinTech directors are women, according to research by DHR International.
