Maurice Antony "Tony" Ewing (born December 9, 1970) is an American businessperson, academic, and a leading authority in digital banking innovation, governance and risk management.[1] He is currently a member of the graduate data analytics faculty at Columbia University.[2] Ewing's key role in developing the world’s first bank account-linked mobile-lending platform as a senior banking executive—later becoming the basis of Google’s “Bebapay” product—marks a pivotal contribution in the use of financial technology for inclusive finance.[3]

Ewing, a Princeton PhD student of Nobel Laureates Ben Bernanke, Daniel Kahneman and John Nash, has also been profiled for his use of behavioral analytics in evaluating how biases in leadership risk taking can create change and risk culture challenges within organizations.[4] In particular, Ewing has warned how these subconscious biases can lead to both enterprise-level disasters and market-level catastrophes: having warned bank boards in Cyprus about a potential for meltdown, two years before the Cyprus Financial Crisis occurred.[5]

Recognized by the Professional Risk Manager’s International Association as a subject matter expert and thought leader,[6] Ewing has reached a wide audience through over 50 publications on leadership and risk management in prominent media outlets like Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Inc. and the Huffington Post.[7][8][9]
