Christine Lee, BillingTree: The Most Influential Women in Payments 2019

News
March 13, 2019

“One of PaymentsSource's Most Influential Women in Payments for 2019, Lee is also president elect and a board member of the Electronic Transactions Association. She is also a board member of Wnet, a professional association for women working in payments. Lee hopes these organizations will help encourage future leadership.

 

There are still too few women in leadership positions, she said. This has made driving diversification in financial services a long battle, according to Lee, adding women who start in business roles at tech-intensive industries leave for other industries at high rates — 53 percent of women, versus 31 percent of men, according to Catalyst.

 

‘Women in influential positions need to take the steps to reverse this trend by educating their counterparts and the fintech industry as a whole,’ she said.

 

Lee's enthusiasm to meet the challenges of a dynamic industry also helps in her new job.”
