The U.S. Faster Payments Council—an industry-led coalition dedicated to driving faster payments innovation and adoption—has announced that ABA SVP Steve Kenneally has been elected to a two-year term on its board. Kenneally will serve alongside 20 other payments system stakeholders and industry experts.
“I am honored to be elected to the board of the Faster Payments Council and join an impressive group of fellow board members,” Kenneally said. “The FPC can play a positive role in supporting options to make faster payments—to anyone at any time—safely and easily. I am looking forward to contributing to the council’s important work.”
Kenneally has been actively involved with the Faster Payments Council on behalf of ABA since it launched in November 2018 and for many years prior in the public-private work to develop the framework for a faster payments infrastructure in the U.S. In addition to his new role on the board, he currently leads a working group on safety and security.
