Income Access, Paysafe’s marketing technology and services provider, has been recognized twice by the 17th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business, the winners of which were announced last week. The company won Bronze Stevie Awards in categories for Women-Run Workplace of the Year and Female Executive of the Year (Canada), awarded to SVP and General Manager Tara Wilson.
The Stevie Awards, which honor female employees, entrepreneurs, and executives across the globe, has now handed Income Access four awards in the last three years, reinforcing its status as a company dedicated to diversity and inclusion at all levels. In 2019, Income Access took home bronze for Women-Run Workplace, while Wilson won silver for Female Executive of the Year (Canada) in 2018.
The last year has seen Income Access further strengthen its leadership position in the iGaming market, driven by a management team largely comprised of accomplished female leaders. This includes senior team members responsible for guiding departments focused on business development, client services, marketing and process management.
This leadership team has been essential in maintaining Income Access’ commitment to delivering quality client support and safeguarding the well-being of its employees in the wake of COVID-19. Over the last several months, Income Access has introduced numerous company-wide initiatives to encourage ongoing communication, remote collaboration and mental well-being.
Wilson has seen the significance of her role increase over this same period, managing a workforce that is primarily operating remotely. Leading by example, she has also volunteered with various organizations, including the SPCA, the Kids for Kids organization through Cedars Hospital, and the Weekend to End Breast Cancer. In addition, the last year saw Wilson named as a national ambassador for both the Universal Women's Network and Women’s Executive Network, while also joining Paysafe’s Women’s Network Group and participating in a variety of podcasts, webinars, and panel discussions.
The Stevie Awards follow Income Access’ second consecutive EGR B2B Award for ‘Affiliate Software Supplier’ in July, and marking a total of six wins in eight years. Over the last year, Income Access also partnered with several internationally recognized brands such as William Hill U.S., FXCM, and Monkey Knife Fight.
Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO of Skrill, NETELLER, and Income Access at Paysafe, said: "We’re exceptionally proud of Tara and the whole Income Access team for how well they have represented Paysafe and our company values. In a challenging year, this team has continued to exemplify our dedication to diversity, inclusion, and strong female leadership."
Commenting on Income Access’ Stevie Award wins, Wilson said: "I’m extremely proud of how hard our team has worked this past year, strengthening our commitment to the needs of our clients as well as the well-being of our employees. Through the implementation of numerous parity initiatives, we have been able to further promote the growth of our strong female leaders and lay the groundwork for similar opportunities in the future."
