I really enjoyed working with Elizabeth. Her top strength, among many others, was developing growth plans to manage the complexity of multiple countries and products. She drove the project of using an existing product, peer to peer payments, to be a key consumer growth lever. This ended up changing the go to market strategy across Europe
