In this newly created role, Ms. Kutler will lead Visa’s government relations efforts in the United States, Canada and Latin America and will be responsible for developing and managing the company’s legislative and regulatory strategy for these markets. She will direct the development of Visa’s public policy on issues of importance to Visa and our clients. “Alison’s depth of experience developing public policy strategies at a U.S. and a global level will be immensely valuable as we continue to enhance Visa’s engagement with governments and drive profitable growth,” said Joshua R.

We are very pleased to welcome someone with Alison’s expertise to Visa.”

Ms. Kutler brings over 20 years of experience in government affairs and public policy. Previously, Ms. Kutler was Vice President, External Affairs at Rio Tinto, where she oversaw federal and state advocacy and policy for the U.S. and Latin America. Before that, Ms. Kutler held senior roles in government and the private sector including at the Export-Import Bank of the United States and U.S. Department of Commerce. She received her J.D. from Stanford Law School and was a Partner in the Public Law and Policy Strategies Group at Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP.

Ms. Kutler will begin at Visa on October 15, reporting directly to Mr. Floum. She will be based in Visa’s Foster City, California headquarters.
