Women Leaders in Payments – Kathleen Fiorello, Head of US Partner Acquisition and Global Capabilities, American Express | Episode 100

Kathleen Fiorello, the Head of US Partner Acquisition and Global Capabilities at American Express is our special guest on this the 100th episode of the Leaders in Payments Podcast. I’m honored to have her on this show as we kick off Women Leaders in Payments month sponsored by American Express.

Kathleen grew up in Wayne New Jersey, where she had a paper route as a kid, after high school she attended Florida State University and has had a long successful career at American Express spanning 25 years.

From playing golf on the boy’s team in high school (because they didn’t have a girl’s team back then) to moving the Stockholm Sweden to run the Nordics market where she learned several powerful lessons to attributing much of her success to hard work, Kathleen provides some dynamic messages about listening to your inner voice, taking risks, believing in yourself and being bold.
