Black History Month: 5 Influencers in the Fintech and Banking Industry
African American icons in the Fintech industry to admire and honor every day.
We honor those who have paved the way for the African American community and whose achievements have made a significant impact on society.
To celebrate Black History Month, we are recognizing five African American influencers (it was hard to pick just five) who have built a path for their successors and whose contributions have become instrumental in shaping the future of business, finance, and fintech. Let’s celebrate them, thank them, and acknowledge their hard work.

A Columbia University graduate, Tracey Travis oversees global finance, accounting, investor relations, information technology, and strategy and new business development for Estee Lauder companies. Her career has set the tone for women, the African American culture and those in corporations that believe the sky’s the limit.
