"The 20 Most Successful Businesswomen to Watch 2021" Highlights MRC Leadership

Seattle, WA - April 7, 2021 -- The Merchant Risk Council's CEO, Julie Fergerson, is prominently featured in the most recent edition of Insight Success magazine, alongside other successful women from a variety of business backgrounds. The piece explores her experience as a leading figure in the modern eCommerce landscape and highlights her leadership style, the challenges she has faced in her career, and the strategies she has adopted to overcome those challenges and excel as an executive.

"I am proud to be featured in this magazine alongside so many exceptional women," said Fergerson. "The contributions women are making to not just the payments and fraud prevention industry, but the entire business landscape, cannot be overstated. I appreciate this opportunity to share my unique experiences and hope it provides visibility into what we are trying to achieve at the MRC."

Insight Success brings attention to the challenges facing modern businesses, and once a year focuses on the profound impact of women with their annual "The 20 Most Successful Businesswomen to Watch" edition of the magazine. The MRC was selected for its long-standing commitment to furthering inclusion and diversity in eCommerce. Career advancement and networking opportunities, programs like the Women in Payments and Fraud community and educational programs such as RAPID Edu are a few examples of this commitment in action.

"Empowering people to take control of their career is at the core of our mission," says Fergerson. "We want to offer these resources to all of our members, regardless of gender or background. Educational programs like our NASBA-certified RAPID Edu courses and industry conferences like MRC Spring Virtual allow our members to connect, collaborate, and advance their professional ambitions no matter who they are or where they come from. I believe I speak for the entire MRC team when I say we are proud of contributing to that goal."
