Maria Nottingham, Executive Vice President at Compass Plus, has been named the winner of the Woman in PayTech Award 2021. The award recognises outstanding women for their distinguished leadership, inspiring work, and their commitment to the betterment of the wider payments industry.
Maria received the accolade for building a processing centre designed to cater for the increasingly diverse requirements of payments industry players today, whether disruptive or traditional, large or small, local or international, universal or niche. She successfully led the team of like-minded experts to build an international, universal processing centre that does not hinder customer growth or vision. Maria wanted to create processing services that are not only driven by transaction volumes and complementary services, but also deployment models, flexible vendor independence controlled by FIs, as well as support for new business lines and cross-functionality.
The PayTech Awards are highly respected and well-known in the industry and are hosted by Fintech Futures. They have been running for the past four years and recognise excellence and innovation in the finance and payments industry worldwide.
Maria commented: “I am honoured to receive this award, and would not have won without the support of my incredibly talented and dedicated team, as well as my wise and passionate mentors. I represent Compass Plus and our mission to expand, progress and have a positive impact on the payments industry. I would like to congratulate all nominees for this award, we all deserve this recognition.”
