 ePayResources™ has announced that the closing keynote speaker for its Executive Payments Summit on Nov. 4, 2021, will be Marisa Walster, VP of Financial Services Solutions at Financial Health Network, an organization uniting industries, business leaders, policymakers, innovators, and visionaries in a shared mission to improve financial health for all. Marisa brings 15 years of experience in corporate strategy, innovation, product management, and consumer insight. 

"With two-thirds of people living in America not financially healthy, supporting customers with financial health solutions that drive inclusion and positive outcomes is critical," said Walster. "Discussion around building a financial health strategy that drives success is important for consumers but also your business by improving loyalty, satisfaction, and cross-sell."

"ePay is delighted to partner with Financial Health Network to shed light on the important topic of Financial Inclusion," said Laura Steele, President & CEO of ePayResources. "The ability to send and receive payments is a critical first step, and we are eager to share collaborative strategies that financial institutions can employ."
