Speaker's bio:
As Managing Executive of The Crossway Group, LLC, Michele Braun trains and advises for-profit and not-for-profit enterprises on risk management and payments initiatives, drawing on her experiences with the Federal Reserve System, in private industry, and with design thinking.

As an officer at the NY Fed, Michele oversaw systemically important payment systems and worked with banks and clearinghouses to reduce risk in domestic and global payments. She served as secretary for the Fed-sponsored, industry-chaired Payments Risk Committee and the Tri-party Repo Infrastructure Reform Task Force.
Previously, for the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors, she managed retail payment policies, oversaw Reserve Bank ACH and check operations, and worked to remove regulatory barriers to electronic payments innovation, including Check21. She was a key on-the-spot manager for Y2K planning, 9/11 payment services recovery, and Dodd-Frank reforms.

Ms. Braun holds a M.S. in Public Management and Policy from Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College and a B.S. in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University. She publishes business and consumer-focused articles on payments, innovation, and risk management.
