2016 Women in payments®
rising star award recipient
SVP of Global Business Development, BBVA
The Women in Payments® Rising Star Award pays tribute to talented women payments professionals, 40 years of age or younger, who have demonstrated leadership, professional excellence, and a commitment to motivating others to make a positive impact in the payments industry.

With over 25,000 Twitter followers Scarlett Sieber is clearly an influential player in the global fintech space. Scarlett transformed the Open Talent (early stage fintech competition) into an incredible event growing it to over 180 companies applying from the US. Scarlett has been an advocate for diversity before and during her time at BBVA and has written pieces about women empowerment and mentorship. Scarlett has helped to transform innovation within the US for BBVA and quickly became the public face of the brand due to her heartfelt, genuine approach to fintech.

When asked about Scarlett, David Birch (ranked as Europe’s most influential commentator on emerging payments) said "It goes without saying that she is smart, and her entrepreneurial experiences are of great value to the fintech world, but her passion and commitment for technology-driven change in the traditionally-conservative banking world mark her out for the future. What’s more, she’s a really nice person, generous in her support of those around her. I see this as a distinctive trait of future leaders. She must be one of the youngest SVPs at BBVA but in a relatively short time has made the bank synonymous with innovation and has become a fintech conduit, bringing ideas and imagination into the bank as well as establishing links from the bank to the wider fintech worlds."

The Awards Committee is proud to honor Scarlett Seiber as one of the Women in Payments® USA 2016 Rising Stars.
