14-year Citi Veteran Included for Second Consecutive Year

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PaymentsSource this week named Citi
Retail Services’
Leslie McNamara, managing director and executive
vice president of Partner Management, one of the Most Influential Women
in Payments for 2016. In its fourth
annual list
and coverage, PaymentsSource cited McNamara’s critical
role in advising her business’ partners – including many of retail’s
largest names — as the digital era fundamentally transforms the retail
and payments industries.

“Our retail partners’ must-achieve goals have always been our primary
focus, and at no time has that been more important than now,” said
McNamara. “Helping enable the industry’s move to omnichannel shopping
with the unique capabilities Citi Retail Services brings continues to be
exciting and extremely rewarding for me personally and professionally.
Helping to prepare other leaders – women and men – for this challenge is
equally fulfilling to me, so I’m especially proud of this recognition.”

“Our 2016 list includes women whose significant achievements,
exceptional leadership, and promotion of innovation in payments are
transforming the landscape,” said editor in chief at PaymentsSource. “As
both an established leader in the payments ecosystem during a period of
rapid change and an active advocate and mentor to other women, Leslie
has made our list for the second year in a row.”

year. She joined Citi in 2002 and held a number of portfolio management,
marketing and customer engagement positions, helping guide the company

partner management, McNamara provides oversight for Citi Retail
Services’ private label and co-brand credit card programs and leads a
team that works closely with retailer partners.
