Today, MasterCard was named to Forbes Most Innovative Companies list. At number 32, MasterCard sits along side the world’s top 100 innovative companies based on a methodology that reflects firms who are not only innovative now, but also expect to be in the future. All of these global brands are working each day to evolve their business and continue to do new and exciting things in their respective fields.
And, at the same time, MasterCard Chief Innovation Officer Garry Lyons was recognized as one of Forbes Next Gen Innovators. His theory on innovation is to “fail smart, move fast and cheap and learn as much as possible.” In the profile Lyons admits that while it’s tough to get consumers excited about payments, they do want easier, faster and safer transactions, and it’s his job to deliver.
