Tara Wilson, General Manager at Paysafe Group’s marketing technology and services provider Income Access, took home the Silver Stevie Award for Female Executive of the Year in Canada at last Friday’s 15th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business. The high-profile Stevie Awards program honors business achievements in over 70 categories.
This award follows Wilson’s recent win of the ‘SupportHER’ award at the Canadian Business Chicks’ Women of Inspiration event in September. In the last several months, Paysafe Group has also seen the following female leaders either win or be shortlisted for major awards: Andrea Dunlop, CEO of Merchant Acquiring, Europe; Claire Gates, CEO of Paysafe Pay Later; Melissa Pauléat, Paysafe’s Vice President of Corporate Marketing; Laura Murphy, Senior Legal Counsel; Esra Erbas, Head of BCM and Disaster Recovery; and Robin Laskowski, Paysafe’s Senior Vice President of IT Application Delivery – Payment Processing.
Wilson assumed the role of Income Access General Manager in October 2017, having previously served as a VP of Operations – Payment Processing (Canada and UK) at Paysafe Group from 2015 to 2017. In the year since that transition, she has helped the company, which provides marketing technology and services for the global iGaming and forex industries, heighten its focus on emerging markets and business opportunities within key sectors.
These efforts contributed to Income Access taking home a fourth consecutive ‘Acquisition & Retention Partner of the Year’ award at the 2018 eGR North America Awards earlier this year. The company has also announced nearly two dozen new client launches since October 2017, including those with the Michigan and Pennsylvania state iLotteries.
Tara Wilson, General Manager at Income Access, Paysafe Group, said: “An honor like this is very special to me and is made even more so given the inspirational company in which I’ve been included. I’m also proud to be part of an organisation that values diversity and inclusion and supports female leaders of both the present and future through measurable actions.”
Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO, Skrill, NETELLER and Income Access at Paysafe Group, said:
The Silver Stevie Award continues an impressive run for Paysafe Group female leaders from across multiple business units, evidencing a commitment to diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the workplace. That commitment recently earned Paysafe a coveted ‘Pink Chip Employer’ award in Europe as well as 2018 Parity Certification by the Women in Governance.
