Erin is a Partner at Glenbrook. Her consulting practice focuses on client engagements in business payments, cross-border transactions, bill payment, and the intersection of corporate finance, banking, and ERP/accounting. She is an advocate for billers, small and medium sized businesses, and governments which are often poorly served by the payments industry.
Recent projects have involved anticipating how ‘faster payments’ will transform B2B and bill pay within the United States and identifying possible winners and losers, payment-enabling eGovernment in the U.S., and the implementation of modern, low cost payment infrastructure as a means to electronify government collections/disbursements and increase financial inclusion in developing markets.
Erin has nearly twenty years of experience leading increasingly complex payment initiatives for corporate clients and advising financial institutions and payment technologists on the development of their payment capabilities.
Before joining Glenbrook, Erin was the founder of Forte Financial, a consulting firm focused on corporate finance efficiency, technology, and process improvement.
Erin holds a B.A. in English from the University of California, Davis, and an MBA from the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. She is a past president of the Financial Women’s Association of San Francisco and also a two-term past president of the San Francisco Treasury Management Association.
She lives in San Francisco, bakes her own sourdough bread, and relies on her bicycle to get around town.
