Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Paysafe Group’s marketing technology and services provider, Income Access, took home the Bronze Stevie Award for Women-Run Workplace of the Year at last Friday’s 16th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business in New York City. The high-profile Stevie Awards program honours women employees, entrepreneurs and executives across the globe in over 90 business-related categories.

The award caps a year in which Income Access has continued to solidify its status as a leader in the global iGaming industry, partnering with internationally recognized brands such as Kindred Group, Ladbrokes Coral and William Hill US. The company has also been committed to strengthening its internal engagement initiatives, community involvement and responsiveness to the needs of its partners in a rapidly evolving industry. These efforts culminated in Income Access’ win for ‘Affiliate Software Supplier’ at the 2019 EGR B2B Awards in June.

Tara Wilson, SVP and General Manager of Income Access at Paysafe, has spearheaded company-wide initiatives to streamline operational processes, nurture ongoing product development and support diversity and inclusion (D&I). Also involved in external activities, Wilson led the Income Access team to participate in several corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives for causes such as the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope Event, the Montreal Children’s Hospital (“Pedal for Kids” fundraiser), Forever Homes Rescue and Cystic Fibrosis.

Income Access’ management structure is further strengthened by accomplished female leaders, holding key positions on teams dedicated to business development, client services, marketing, as well as process management.

The Stevie Award accolade follows Senior Affiliate Marketing Coordinator Samantha Ross collecting the ‘Best Lottery Affiliate Manager’ award at this year’s iGB Affiliate Awards in February. Paysafe received further recognition when Claire Gates, CEO of Paysafe Pay Later, was named one of PaymentsSource’s ‘Most Influential Women in Payments in 2019’ in March. Gates also won a Gold Stevie Award in the ‘Manager of the Year – Financial Services’ category at the 2019 German Stevie Awards in Munich in May. Paysafe also recently received Parity Certification by the Canadian Women in Governance organisation, demonstrating the Group’s commitment to gender diversity and continuing efforts towards parity in the workplace.

Danny Chazonoff, Chief Commercial Officer, Paysafe Group, said: “We’re all very proud of this well-deserved achievement for the Income Access team. Recognition in this category reflects Paysafe’s commitment to strong female leadership and our ongoing support of diversity and inclusion across the Group.”

Commenting on Income Access’ Stevie Award, Wilson said: “The hours of hard work, dedication and innovation accomplished by various teams in our organisation are all reflected in this prestigious award. I’m proud to continually advocate and implement parity initiatives within an organisation that truly values diversity and inclusion and career progress for female leaders.
