About Cara Hayward
I have a passion for bringing the financial services industry into the 21st century through the use of technology. As the daughter of small business owners I understand how important it is to have access to your money and the ability to move it around as efficiently as possible in order to survive and thrive. As the North American Director of Strategic Partnerships for Currencycloud I work with platforms in the industry to provide a completely embedded experience for businesses and consumers to be able to move money around the world.
Prior to joining Currencycloud, Cara spent 4 years at CBANC as the Director of Business Development helping community banks, credit unions, and their vendor partners navigate complex challenges in the industry. Before that she spent over six years at Barclays in New York as a VP in Sales where she was responsible for securing large hedge fund mandates for the firm.
Cara holds a BS in Business Administration from the University of New Hampshire where she concentrated on entrepreneurship. When she’s geeking out over fintech, Cara enjoys playing soccer, relaxing with her husband and dog, traveling and pretending to be a home chef.
