Hamilton McNutt brings over 10 years of experience in international development, with the last 6 years of his career being focused on digital financial services and digital payments.
After starting his career in the classrooms of Washington, DC, Hamilton took a position at a small tech advisory firm based in Guatemala, where he helped small tech entrepreneurs develop and implement business plans to establish mesh networks in communities without access to connectivity. He later moved to Solimar International, a small consulting firm to develop and implement business plans for small and medium enterprises in Ecuador and Bolivia. Since 2011, Hamilton has focused on helping clients better understand how using digital payments can help improve transparency and lower costs while also helping to expand the access and relevancy of financial services for individuals who previously have operated entirely in cash. His work has taken him to over 20 different countries, provided insights into a variety of sectors from education to agriculture, and exposed him to a variety of business models and digital channels that can continue bridging the financial inclusion gap on a global level.
Hamilton earned a Masters Degree in Education from Trinity Washington University and his Bachelor of Science in Economics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
