In an electrifying turn of events at Fintech Nexus 2023, Luvleen Sidhu, the trailblazing Chair, CEO, and Founder of BM Technologies, Inc. (BMTX), was named “Executive of the Year.” The prestigious accolade was presented in the heart of New York City at the Javits Center.
This honor bears testimony to Sidhu’s extraordinary leadership and the innovative strides made by BMTX, one of the nation’s largest digital banking platforms and Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) providers. BMTX, formerly known as BankMobile, continues revolutionizing digital banking by offering affordable, transparent, and customer-friendly solutions.
Sidhu was chosen from an impressive roster of five finalists, including industry stalwarts such as Zach Perret, the CEO and Co-founder of Plaid, and Chris Britt, Founder and CEO of Chime. The panel of judges comprised diverse leaders and experts from the banking and lending industry.
In addition to bagging this coveted award, Sidhu will also participate in a thought-provoking panel at Fintech Nexus USA. The discussion, “Are we moving to a world dominated by embedded finance?” will see her sharing the stage with distinguished leaders such as Alecia Chen, EVP of Operations & General Counsel of Climb Credit, and Sankaet Pathak, Founder & CEO of Synapse Financial Technologies.
Sidhu, a formidable force in the male-dominated fintech sector, also holds the distinction of being the youngest female to take a company public at the time of its listing.
Reflecting on the honor, Sidhu said, “I am truly grateful to be honored with the 2023 Fintech Nexus Executive of the Year award. The finalists in this category represent admired executive leadership from inspiring companies, and it is a privilege to be among them.”
Sidhu’s commitment to mentoring women and empowering entrepreneurs to bring new fintech technologies to market is well-known. As the founder of the BMTX Foundation, she has also established an Annual Financial Empowerment Scholarship for pioneering students in financial empowerment.
As BMTX continues to expand its digital banking offerings, Sidhu expressed her excitement to discuss the future of embedded finance at Fintech Nexus. She said, “We remain nimble as we position BMTX for the next level of growth. We are looking forward to the future with acceleration for our customers, shareholders, and the industry at large.”
