Debbie Watkins

Co-founder & CEO of Lucy

I have 20+ years of experience in technology for finance, mobile-enabled products and services, business and strategy consulting and management. I have led customer-centric market research and product development engagements; supported clients in technology platform needs assessment and implementation; built multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams in a number of countries; and acted as Project Director for a number of long-term multi-million dollar mobile money and financial services solution implementations.

I have lived in Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Singapore over the past 20 years, and worked in 30 additional countries throughout Africa and Asia. My career in the UK included Operations Director for an ERP solutions provider and Head of Deployment for a commercial bank-enabled smart card-based electronic cash service.
