Mastercard’s Michael Miebach Joins USISPF Board
Miebach said that in his new role, he looks forward to working with the top advocacy group focused on strengthening India-US partnership in Washington, and hopes to build strategic, commercial, and people-to-people ties between the two nations.
“USISPF is a critical forum for business and government leaders to come together and drive the next phase of growth in the US-India partnership. I believe the relationship between our two countries will define the future of the global economy and shape our ability to tackle the most pressing global challenges together,” Miebach said in a statement.
“I look forward to working with USISPF to build the strategic, commercial, and people-to-people ties that will serve as the bedrock of the US-India partnership in the 21st century,” he added.
Welcoming Miebach’s confirmation to the Board, USISPF president and CEO Mukesh Aghi said: “Michael has been a true champion of digital economy cooperation between the United States and India, helping drive cutting-edge innovation that powers commerce and societies in both countries.”
The USISPF said that Miebach’s addition to the board reflects a consistent commitment from the senior-most levels of Mastercard to strengthen the US-India corridor and trade and commercial relations between the two countries.
“Mastercard’s steadfast commitment to financial inclusion and digital transformation is a model for the private sector — both in the US-India corridor and around the world. I look forward to continuing our partnership with Mastercard and engaging with Michael as a USISPF Board Member,” he said.
Mieback, a Master of Business Administration from the University of Passau in Germany, joined Mastercard in 2010 to lead its Middle East and Africa operations.
