ACI Worldwide, a global leader in mission-critical, real-time payments software, announced that the U.S. Faster Payments Council (FPC), an industry-led organization committed to advancing safer, faster payments in the United States, has selected ACI’s leader of real-time payments in the Americas, Bridget Hall, to serve on the FPC’s 2023-2024 Board Advisory Group. The Board Advisory Group advises the FPC Board of Directors and staff, providing external perspectives on real-time payments to help the FPC respond to the latest industry trends.
“I’m honored to be selected as part of this prestigious group of industry leaders who are jointly committed to supporting the adoption of real-time payments,” said Hall. “Faster payments are a game-changer for businesses, banks and individuals, removing payments friction, adding liquidity, and bolstering global economies. ACI’s technology solutions have helped make real-time payments a reality in dozens of countries around the world, and I look forward to bringing that experience to the FPC.”
Since its inception, the FPC Board Advisory Group has offered insights on topics including new work group formations, diversity and inclusion, components of a payment’s ecosystem, barriers to adoption, and successful faster payments use cases. This will be Hall’s second time serving, having previously been a member of the inaugural Board Advisory Group in 2020.
“The next horizon for real-time payments will focus on driving adoption and continuing to strengthen how we fight financial fraud – including employing AI-driven technologies to provide accurate detection, real-time decisioning, and strong payment intelligence analytics across a wide spectrum of payment types and geographies,” added Hall.
