WOMEN IN FINTECH: BILLGO CONTINUES TO CLOSE THE GAP WITH LEADERSHIP HIRES
Intelligent bill pay app team adds female powerhouses to staff and advisory board.
February 15, 2017 – BillGO, a Colorado-based fintech company, and the only intelligent bill-pay app that makes it easy to connect pay and manage any bill, is pleased to add two new executives to its roster. Sara Sisenwein joins the BillGO leadership team as Vice President of Marketing, and Kelli Schultz joins the BillGO Board of Advisors.
“By expanding our team, we can continue to ensure we’re developing and marketing a quality product that can scale,” says Kelly Seidl, Co-Founder and Director of Engineering. “We’re excited to not only add to our phenomenal lineup of talent, but also support women leadership in the male-dominated FinTech industry,” she adds.
As Vice President of Marketing, Sisenwein brings nearly two decades of marketing leadership experience to BillGO. She began her career developing national and international media plans at such agencies as Young & Rubicam, Lowe & Partners, Arnold Worldwide and DraftFCB. Her interest and focus on digital media and mobile applications brought her to the startup community where she has helped multiple startups grow ideas into mobile competitors. Sisenwein joins BillGO from Clip Interactive, an ad-tech startup, where she drove 350k monthly active users (MAUs) in the company’s first year.
BillGO has also added a big player to its advisory board, bringing on Kelli Schultz. She brings extensive FinTech experience, and a focus on payments and compliance. Schultz was previously the President of iPay, which sold for $300M, President of the Association of Financial Technology and Co-Founder, President & CEO of Vendminder – a bank and credit union vendor software. She currently serves as President of Allied Payments, and is consistently listed as one of InnoTribe’s top women in FinTech.
With additional investments and BillGO’s plans for continued growth, it is only fitting that they continue to grow their team with impressive talent. The company is now preparing for a “full-force disruption of the mobile payments space” by investing in the marketing and engineering teams, and will continue to disrupt the industry-specific gender gap by supporting power women in FinTech.
