Job Title

Vice President, Global Bill Pay Strategy and Commercialization


As Mastercard seeks to define a world beyond cash, we are pursuing payment opportunities leveraging non-card technologies. Mastercard€™s acquisition of Vocalink adds Real-Time Payments (RTP) to our solution set, allowing us to capture new segments of cash, check and ACH payments for the network. One of the largest identified opportunities for Mastercard is in revolutionizing consumer bill pay. In many markets, like the U.S., the current consumer bill pay experience is cumbersome, costly, slow and fragmented. By combining our RTP assets with our existing biller network, i.e., RPPS in the U.S., we can bring a solution to market that improves this outdated ecosystem for all parties involved. To win in the market, we will also leverage our strengths in brand, standards, consistency, trust and security.

To accomplish this, we must build a world-class bill pay product. Our first focus market is the U.S., and others will quickly follow. We will engage key external partners to create our new biller network, including the largest banks and bill service providers in each market.

This leader will also design and implement plans to allow us to run the Bill Pay business, once launched, as well as integrate any relevant businesses.
