2016 Women in payments®
inspiration award recipient
Managing Director and Head of Global Cross Currency Product, Bank of America Merrill Lynch
The Women in Payments® Award for Inspiration is awarded to a woman who plays a leadership role by mentoring and inspiring others. She shares her knowledge and expertise to enable and empower others, and has positively influenced the financial community by encouraging diversity, learning and professional excellence.

Hilani Kerr, Managing Director and Head of Global Cross Currency Product at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, is an inspiration inside and outside her workplace. As a business leader, she has made foreign exchange an integral part of the firm’s overarching cash management solutions. She mentors and inspires others, shares knowledge and expertise, and encourages diversity, learning and professional excellence. She is actively engaged in the bank’s Diversity and Inclusion Council and is a member of Women’s Leadership Council where she connects women across Global Banking and Markets to drive business, attract talent and inspire success. She mentors talent across the bank and actively promotes mobility, taking her experiences from working around the globe, to advise and support others seeking growth and development.

As a mother of two young girls, Hilani’s belief in leading by example starts close to home. She encourages her children to have passion and to pursue their interests while instilling a compassion for others. As a marathon runner, Hilani raises money for charities and teaches her children the importance of physical well-being by taking them on her training runs and coaching their sports.

Hilani is a positive role model demonstrating the strong leadership role women can play in payments and we are proud to award her the 2016 Women in Payments® USA Award for Inspiration.
