“I feel fortunate spending my time debating the future of financial services with many friends on this list,” Shevlin said, “and it’s an honor to be among professionals like Chris Skinner, Jim Marous, and Ghela Boskovich, people who work hard to guide financial professionals with their insights.”

Sam Kilmer, managing director at Cornerstone Advisors, was sought out to serve as a judge for this year’s fall FinovateAwards, which recognize companies and individuals for exceptional fintech innovation. Kilmer is returning as a judge for the third year to the BAI Global Innovation Awards honoring worldwide organizations and leaders who are pursuing solutions in financial services.

“I love my job making sense of the fintech world and advising providers, institutions, and investors,” Kilmer said. “The private client work is already rewarding, but being recognized publicly alongside the likes of Mary Wisniewski, Jason Henrichs, and William Mills was completely unexpected.”

“For years, both of these experts have been delivering gritty insights to Cornerstone Advisors’ financial services and fintech clients,” said Steve Williams, president and partner at the firm. “Ron’s widely read What’s Going On In Banking, commissioned research studies, and weekly Forbes columns are cited in major financial outlets almost daily. Sam, who always has his finger on the pulse of the fintech world, is one of the most active voices in our industry, bridging the dialogue between financial institutions and fintechs through a variety of channels, including GonzoBanker, our blog; Cornerstone’s Fintech Hustle podcast; and as a much-requested event speaker.”

“Our entire team is proud of the affirmation by these notable organizations of our top fintech professionals’ leadership expertise,” Williams concluded.
