  1. Suneera Madhani, founder and CEO of Stax (formerly Fattmerchant), is a payments and technology innovator who catapulted her business idea from startup to multi-million dollar company — disrupting the payments ecosystem as we know it. In 2014, Madhani noticed the overall payment industry didn’t have the small- to medium-sized businesses’ best interests in mind. With the hopes of providing a better payment experience, Madhani founded Stax, an integrated payment technology platform that revolutionizes the payment processing experience for businesses. Madhani’s charismatic leadership and passion for delivering simple yet powerful payment technology has led to Stax’s domination of the industry. She effortlessly balances vision with budget, protocol with creativity, and growth with scaling. Her confidence in her vision for Stax is contagious, and she naturally brings out the best in her team and inspires them to accomplish goals and tackle challenges. Madhani also has an innate ability to build an exceptional company culture. At Stax, she’s put together a team of people who trust each other, love what they do and are passionate about the company’s mission. Madhani leads with an open heart, vulnerability and empathy. Under her leadership, Stax has processed more than $10 billion in payments, scaled operations internationally, and employs more than 200 people. Additionally, the payment technology provider was ranked No. 1 on U.S. News & World Report’s list of Best Credit Card Processing Companies of 2020, classified as one the most innovative fintech companies in Forbes Fintech 50, and listed on the 2020 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the second year in a row. Madhani herself was recognized as the 2018 Most Influential Woman in Payments and one of Fortune’s 40 Under 40 in the finance category, and was recently named a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2021 Florida Award. Madhani is also the host of CEO School, a podcast helping female founders break $1 million in revenue.
