Receiving recognition would force many leaders into complacency, but Globe Fintech Innovations Inc. (Mynt) Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Ray Berja is not one of them.
Having received the award for Best Fintech CFO of the Year from the Global CFO Excellence Awards, Berja claims that the title only shows how Mynt, which operates GCash, is affecting the industry of finance and its role in propelling the Philippines into the cashless economy.
“This award says a lot about credibility and trust. The market having been able to see that there’s a very resilient, strong, and internationally-recognized function, it means a lot for the organization, as it tells them that the back-end is not run by a typical group — that it's run by a world-class organization,” Berja said.
As a sanctioned international search by British global digibase Acquisition International Magazine, the awardee is chosen from a large pool of candidates in the global fintech industry, based on commitment to excellence, innovation, and customer focus.
