Marqeta wins award for Financial Services Company of the Year at the American Business Awards


We’re excited to share that we were recognized as the Silver 2020 Stevie Award winner for Financial Services Company of the Year at the American Business Awards. This is a testament to our transformational 2019 and our team’s hard work to drive growth for our company in our market. 

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and nonprofit, large and small. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, August 5.  

The American Business Awards received more than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and industries for consideration in a wide range of categories, and more than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. According to the judges, Marqeta’s award reflected its momentum and our service to our customers. 

“As the world turned into a digital system that relies on artificial intelligence, Marqeta topped itself as the supporting arm for financial operations that take place in the physical and virtual reality by issuing fully secure electronic payment cards, which helped the company achieve great growth rates, especially during the year 2019,” commented a Stevie Awards judge about Marqeta. 

Marqeta empowers some of the world’s most innovative companies to design seamless payment experiences and go to market faster with our modern technology. Our payments platform was built from the ground up to allow customers to instantly issue cards with flexibility, control, and scale. More than 140 million cards have been issued through our platform and if consolidated as a single card issuer would rank as one of the largest 25 issuers of debit and prepaid cards in the United States.
