Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) – Globe Telecom Inc. Senior Vice President and Head of Broadband Business Martha Sazon will be the new chief executive officer of GCash operator company Mynt effective June 1.

Sazon will replace Anthony Thomas, who led the financial technology company for three years.

Sazon prides has 12 years of experience handling various Globe businesses such as postpaid mobile, small and medium business, and broadband business. She also pioneered a number of Globe customer services like MySuperPlan, SME solutions-selling, Home Prepaid WiFi, and Streamwatch Xtreme Prepaid.

Sazon is expected to help Mynt in re-shaping, championing, and bringing to life Globe’s purpose in the fintech space towards a digital, financially-inclusive, and cashless nation.

“Martha, as a leader, is a clear embodiment of Mynt’s current state that is ready to take on the future, fired up for sustainable growth and armed with an evolved, progressive approach to customer experience,” said Ernest Cu, president, and chief executive officer of Globe Telecom Inc.

Mynt, one of the portfolio companies of 917Ventures, a major corporate incubator in the Philippines wholly-owned by Globe, is dedicated on mobile financial services and focused on accelerating financial inclusion through mobile money, micro-loans, and technology.

Thomas, meanwhile, will continue to be part of the Mynt Board as its advisor. Cu credited Thomas for putting GCash in the position to be the leader in the country’s fintech space.

“Mynt’s unwavering commitment in delivering world-class e-wallet services for the Filipinos has brought the brand GCash to its undisputed leadership position in the Philippine Fintech space today. This achievement would not have been possible if not for the leadership of Anthony Thomas in the last three years,” said Cu.

GCash, one of the two fintech companies operated by Mynt, is a leading micropayment service in the country that transforms the mobile phone into a virtual wallet.

Mynt also operates Fuse, a tech-based lending company that enables Filipinos to get microloans to business loans.
