Popular adds fintech consultant to its board

Popular in San Juan, Puerto Rico, has added a fintech expert to its board.

The $67 billion-asset company said in a press release Friday that Betty DiVita had become a director. 

DeVita is chief business officer and a director at FinConecta, a technology firm focused on the digitalization of finance and open banking. She is also the founder and CEO of BetdevSolutions, a fintech advisory firm, according to her LinkedIn profile.

DeVita previously served as chief commercial officer of digital payments and labs at Mastercard Worldwide, where she oversaw the company’s research, development and deployment of payment innovations. She also worked at Citigroup, eventually becoming chairman and CEO of Citibank Canada.

“Betty’s deep track record of delivering strong growth and innovation in diverse financial services contexts will be invaluable as we navigate our constantly changing industry,” Ignacio Alvarez, Popular’s president and CEO, said in the release.

The company also added José Rodríguez, a certified public accountant, to its board. He retired as an audit partner at KPMG in April.
