MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Globe announced the appointment of Martha Sazon as new Chief Executive Officer of Mynt, operator of GCash, effective June 1, 2020, transitioning from her current role as Globe’s Senior Vice President and Head of Broadband Business. She succeeds Anthony Thomas who led the fintech company in the last three years.
“Inherent to her is the ability to pioneer and execute breakthroughs that led to significant and sustainable results, all anchored on addressing the most important customer needs such as the MySuperPlan, SME solutions-selling, and Home Prepaid WiFi and Streamwatch Xtreme Prepaid, while transforming operations through agile and digitalization,” said Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO. “Martha, as a leader, is a clear embodiment of Mynt’s current state that is ready to take on the future, fired up for sustainable growth and armed with an evolved, progressive approach to customer experience.”
Mynt is poised for scale and Martha’s leadership experience in Globe is expected to help the company in re-shaping, championing, and bringing to life Globe’s purpose in the fintech space towards a digital, financially-inclusive and cashless nation.
Meanwhile, Thomas will continue to serve as Advisor to the Mynt Board. “Mynt’s unwavering commitment in delivering world-class e-wallet services for the Filipinos has brought the brand GCash to its undisputed leadership position in the Philippine Fintech space today. This achievement would not have been possible if not for the leadership of Anthony Thomas in the last three years,” said Cu.
