As President of North America for Mastercard, Kirkpatrick leads the company’s largest market. She has responsibility for customer relationships and operational activities across the US and Canada.
Kirkpatrick began her career with Mastercard more than 25 years ago, and has been part of its evolution from a not-for-profit association to a global leader in payments innovation and technology. Linda has had several diverse roles across the business - from working on the company’s initial public offering, to overseeing global rules and standards, to managing relationships with banks and merchants. Her diversity of experience has given her an in-depth understanding and appreciation of customer needs that she brings to all aspects of the organization.
