Recode has announced Apple’s head of Apple Pay, company vice president Jennifer Bailey will speak at its upcoming Code Commerce event, taking place at Westfield’s Bespoke in San Francisco on December 6.
Apple executive Jennifer Bailey has been with the company for 13 years, first running all of Apple’s e-commerce sites and now heading up the digital payments service Apple Pay. While there’s still industry debate about whether Apple Pay’s tap-and-pay payments are the future of in-store shopping, most smart industry people agree the new Apple Pay for the web is going to be huge. Add to that rumors of a new MacBook Pro with a fingerprint sensor built in for Apple Pay purchases, and we are going to have a whole lot to discuss with Bailey in December.
Recode’s Code Commerce series offers up onstage interviews with entrepreneurs and executives “driving change in the e-commerce and payments industries.” The event’s lineup of speakers will also include Jack Dorsey, founder and CEO of mobile payments company Square, and Peter Szulczewski, founder and CEO of Wish, the second most popular shopping app in the U.S. behind Amazon.
In related news, MacRumors notes Bozoma Saint John, Head of Global Consumer Marketing for Apple Music and iTunes, will be speaking at Fortune‘s Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit, a two-day event to be held on November 29-30 in Laguna Niguel, California.
The summit offer participants an opportunity to connect with other “rapidly rising executives, entrepreneurs, and innovators in business, government, philanthropy, education and the arts.”
