Dion LisleDirector of Corporate Ventures at Huntington National Bank
Dion Lisle has been in Fintech for 18+ years. Lisle is one of the few Fintech leaders that has been on both sides of the coin, having been a Venture Investor for Citibank and First Data as well as an early employee in multiple Fintech startups. Dion's time in startups include the ups of a $220M exit and the downs of a failed startup in mobile payments.
Lisle has spent the past 5+ years working with banks large and small on their efforts to drive Digital Innovation. These consulting efforts include leading and delivering the industry’s first Blockchain + IOT payments platform for Fleet Automobiles, successfully launched in 2020.
Lisle merged his own advisory, Facere25, LLC with partners to form Forty Grand, LLC with a singular focus on driving value for Community Banks. In 12 months, Dion was able to design a BaaS platform for a small bank to offer Fintech services and lead a Community Bank focused agenda at Money2020 in Las Vegas.
