According to the TFTR, individuals featured on the list for 2021 represent “some of the brightest minds at the helm of some of the most influential tech companies in the world.”
While awardees hail from fintech companies from across the world: Latvia, South Africa, Sweden, the UK, the United States, and others, versatility in the management of big and multilayered projects is what ties these professionals together. In the words of TFTR, what’s distinct about them is “the ability to collaborate and involve input from a wide range of disciplines and stakeholders — whether that be from marketing professionals, engineers, distributors, designers, or the customers themselves — in order to increase wider market adoption, expand growth, and, in some cases, catalyze industry disruption.”
For years, this recognition has celebrated leaders and admired achievements in the field of financial technology. Special attention is paid to areas where unique product vision, management of cross-functional teams and business acumen is demonstrated.

Utilizing his knowledge and experience, Marcis led his team in a collaboration project with the Nasdaq Baltics, developing one-of-a-kind technology that reinvented the way that ISIN codes are requested and issued. Something that usually took days to complete, became possible in a matter of seconds with the new system.
