This episode is part of our special series focused on Diversity and Inclusion. In this series I will be talking with leaders in the payments industry (and maybe some experts from outside of the industry) about diversity and inclusion. It has been proven that a diverse workforce and diverse management team leads to increased creativity, better decision making, reduced employee turnover and increased profit – as well as many other benefits that we will be talking about.

I’m honored to be joined on the twelfth episode of our special series on D&I by Garima Shah, the president at Biller Genie.
As Biller Genie president, Garima Shah can usually be found (and heard) reviewing company financials, finding strategic business opportunities, managing the Biller Genie team – and serving as volunteer dancer for the team’s social media videos. More competitive than Conor McGregor, as a child Garima would do anything it took to win at monopoly (and still does), which pushed her to pursue an MBA in the competitive fields of entrepreneurship and finance.
Garima learned early on that she enjoyed helping and leading others, which led her to serve in key positions in the fintech industry, such as head of national sales for eMerchantPay, and Chief Business Development Officer at Direct Connect. She has cultivated long relationships throughout her 17 years in the payments industry. Garima reunited with friend and Biller Genie CEO, Thomas Aronica, and the dream team was formed. In her spare time, Garima creates tik tok videos with her daughters and casually wins Bollywood dance competitions.
