As a recognition program that celebrates technology innovators in financial services, this award honors leaders who are building a foundation for the industry's future while leading innovation across banking.
NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- American Banker, Arizent's essential resource for senior executives in financial services, launches a new celebratory program: Innovator of the Year. This initiative expands on the Digital Banker of the Year awards the publication has given out for the past decade.
Nominations are now open and will close on February 17, 2023. Finalists will be announced before the Innovator of the Year is named at the annual Digital Banking Conference, which will be held June 12-14, 2023 in Boca Raton, Florida.
"Innovation in finance lifts everyone up: the consumers and businesses who get better and more convenient ways to handle their money, the fintech startups that generate and bring to life new ideas and the banks that execute on their own fresh concepts and those brought to them by fintechs'," said Penny Crosman, executive editor, technology at American Banker. "We wanted to find and profile innovators in banking and fintech who are moving the ball forward in a way that eventually will benefit all."
This program is open to any applicants who work at a bank, financial institution or financial technology company that is based in the United States while leading an innovative technology project in the past 12 months.
