Merchant Risk Council appoints industry executive as CEO
SEATTLE--The MRC Board of Directors has appointed Danielle Nagao as the global organization’s chief executive officer.
Nagao, recently a vice-president of ginancial operations for Tickets.com, a subsidiary of Major League Baseball Advanced Media, comes to the MRC with 10 years of hands-on experience managing its multichannel payments and fraud systems. She has collectively over 20 years in financial planning and business management. “Danielle brings decades of real-world experience and a perspective that will enhance our ability to drive programs and topics most relevant to our membership – the online merchant and the solution providers whom assist them. We are honoured to have Danielle leading the MRC and establishing our agenda for the future, as new challenges such as alternative payments, advanced fraud and data breaches make the world of ecommerce more complex,” says Rossini Zumwalt, MRC chairwoman.
Nagao is not new to the association; she has been a member of the MRC Global Board of Directors since 2013 and the Americas Advisory Board since 2011. “Having served the MRC and its members in various capacities over the years, I have come to understand the potential catalyst the MRC offers. The MRC is a driver of best practices and positive improvement for this industry,” says Nagao. “Initiatives such as our Global Payments Survey & Global Fraud Survey, educational forums, and global conferences will provide merchants the tools to improve risk practices and grow revenues.”
