People on the Move: Tara Nathan, MasterCard
MasterCard promoted Tara Nathan to executive vice president of public-private partnerships. She will continue to manage the company’s international development efforts, while adding oversight of government services and solutions initiatives. Nathan recently played a role in the launch of the MasterCard Aid Network, an end-to-end, non-financial service designed to streamline aid distribution even in the absence of telecommunications infrastructure. Her team also helped establish MasterCard Labs for Financial Inclusion. Nathan’s appointment follows the retirement of Ed Brandt, who led the company’s government services and solutions group since April 2012. He had been at MasterCard for 10 years.
