Kristy Duncan

After the first Women in Payments event in 2012, I thought, what a great day, with such incredible positive energy. This really confirms there are many other women who are interested in a day of payments-focused learning, networking, and celebrating the achievements of women across the payments ecosystem. Now how can we build this to make it better?

Kristy Duncan founded Women in Payments® in 2012 and has grown the initiative to include Canada, the US, Australia and the UK. After a 13-year career at a leading Canadian bank, Kristy consulted for a number of years in payments, where her work included research, strategy, product positioning, stakeholder facilitation, and other initiatives that educate and connect people in the payments ecosystem. Kristy's banking experience includes leadership positions in cash management, treasury, corporate banking, finance and operations. She is a registered Professional Engineer and holds a Bachelor of Applied Science and Engineering from the University of Toronto.
