She leads Lean Growth Product ideation and her charge is to support the product team through identification and development of scalable disruptors to the Payment Processing industry, including emerging technology. Moving to Product a year ago was an opportunity to recreate and refresh her skills after spending over 20 years leading in various Operations units. Immediately prior to working in the Product organization, Tara led the Financial Institution and Merchant Implementations teams for Worldpay, successfully driving the teams in onboarding over 200 clients during her three year tenure as well as rolling out EMV certification for over 1,000 Financial Institutions and Enterprise/ Mid-Market Merchants.

The opportunity to move from the US to the UK, as well as the experience of managing teams located in 6 global locations and providing direct client support in over 30 countries led to her belief that fantastic ideas can come from any source; the trick is to recognize and act upon them. Prior to her tenure at TSYS, Tara led Operational Strategy development for Aflac, a Fortune 200 company. This was following a variety of roles including data warehousing manager, marketing assistant and five years as a social worker working with foster and adoptive parents.
