Ashley is a communications and marketing specialist with over 20 years of experience helping companies craft and commercialize their stories. She’s focused on financial services for the past 18 years, starting at a FIX protocol start-up firm where she had the pleasure of wearing many hats to help substantially grow the business.

She honed her skills at a communication agency, working with primarily FinTech clients, before moving to Swift to lead communications for North America and assist with innovation and startup outreach efforts. From there she moved to Citi’s Treasury and Trade Solutions group, managing marketing of financial institution clients with a focus on commercialization of cross-border payments. Ashley holds a BFA from New York University.

“Financial services are the engine of global commerce. The fuel is telling the stories of how the industry has shaped history and the futures of people around the world.”
