Imani Smith

Rise YP Board Events Committee Chair
Product Delivery Manager, Mastercard

Imani Smith is a Product Delivery Manager at Mastercard and joined Rise Young Professionals in Fall 2019. Originally from Southern California, she moved to the midwest to attend Washington University in St. Louis, where she graduated with a joint BS/MBA, simultaneously earning an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and MBA, focused in Marketing & Strategy. After graduating in 2017, she immediately joined Mastercard as part of their MBA Rotational Program, taking on various roles across Product Management and Operations & Technology, before settling on her current role, ensuring successful implementation of Mastercard’s products and services for merchants and payment service providers.

Imani joined Rise in an effort to give back to the community she has called home since 2012. For her, it’s been an incredible opportunity to learn more about the history and character of St. Louis’ many neighborhoods, and meet new people in the city with similar passions for equitable access to quality housing.
