Wilson’s appointment to the OBIC board of directors represents the not-for-profit open banking development organization’s gender diversity target taking a step closer.
OBIC’s 50/50 gender representation at boardroom goal has now reached 30%, with still 10 months to go for the company to reach its target by the end of 2021.
Wilson has around two decades of experience in the technology industry, and joined payments provider Paysafe in 2015, later making an international transition to its marketing technology and services provider Income Access, which specializes in the online gaming market, among others.
As the COO of Income Access, Wilson oversaw product development and innovation among other operational processes.
OBIC also mentioned how her appointment reflects its “ongoing commitment to establishing a board of directors that possesses a wealth of industry expertise and is bound by shared beliefs regarding the value of open banking for Canadian consumers.”
Speaking about her appointment, Wilson said: "I'm honoured to have the opportunity to join the OBIC's board of directors and be part of an initiative that's dedicated to spurring financial innovation for the benefit of Canadians.
“In addition, the OBIC promises to be a leader when it comes to diversity and inclusion, something which has always been one of my own core focuses, with its mission of achieving a 50/50 board by the end of 2021."
