“I believe Marqeta’s modern card issuing platform can redefine what is possible in today’s digital economy and sits at a cross-section of the accelerating shift to digital payments, the convergence of software and payments and the rise of a new wave of developer-led companies laser focused on user experience. It was immediately clear to me just what Jason has built at Marqeta and the potential it has to capture a significant opportunity and I’m delighted to join its board,” said Chang.

Elliott is EVP, Chief Customer & Partner Officer at Cisco, leading its global sales and marketing organization, all go-to-market and partner and channel strategies. She started her tech career at IBM, spending more than 2 decades in key executive and management positions. She also served as Microsoft’s Corporate VP, overseeing sales and marketing teams creating the industry strategy for Microsoft, and led their worldwide Public Sector organization, serving government, education, and health care customers across more than 100 countries. She then created and led Juniper Network’s Strategic Alliances and ultimately became EVP, Chief Customer Officer, responsible for their $6 nn revenue stream and all marketing activities.

“I have three criteria when I’m considering joining a Board: market opportunity, proven leadership, and operational efficiency. Marqeta checks the box on all three. I believe there is a significant, global shift towards digital payments and I’m excited to partner with Jason and Marqeta’s leadership team to help Marqeta seize this exciting opportunity,” said Elliott.

“We believe Marqeta’s modern card issuing platform is addressing a significant global opportunity in digital payments. I’m excited to welcome Amy and Gerri to our board. Both women are forward thinking business minds with experience building and growing massive businesses. Amy has been a founder, led huge global teams and been in the trenches as an advisor to everyone from small startups to large corporations, while Gerri is a business visionary, with deep experience in enterprise technology and building large international sales teams. Their insight and perspective will be invaluable to Marqeta as we scale,” said Jason Gardner, Founder and CEO of Marqeta.
