“Lydia began working in real estate at the early age of 15 with the Florida Credit Union,” Rouse said. “There, she learned skills in the multiple facets of banking and consumer lending. She later expanded her knowledge, skill set and career into the corporate finance and information technology arena.”

In Mardenborough’s current role, she is senior vice president at Citibank where she heads the IT Project Management Office for Citibank’s Global Anti-Money Laundry Compliance Technology Division.

As the senior leader of this team, Mardenborough is responsible for managing the successful execution of Strategic and Critical Regulatory IT programs and projects across a $300 million technology portfolio.

Mardenborough has nearly 20 years’ experience in financial services and held a number of roles in the real estate and mortgage banking industry prior to joining Citibank more than 10 years ago.

Mardenborough is an active member of S.D. James Evangelistic Association and its EPC Churches Worldwide. James is the founder of the Each One Reach One annual event in Brundidge. She is the member of an auxiliary group which has as its mission the enrichment of lives of young girls and the teaching of the principles of Christian life.

Rouse said Mardenborough is passionate about giving back to her community and educating young people on financial literacy. In Hillsborough, Florida, she plays an essential role in fostering a mentoring program that extends the knowledge of banking, financial management and budgeting to youth in the community.

Each One Reach One is free and open to the public. Other activities of the day will include a bake contest, bouncy houses, free haircuts for boys and a giveaway of sock, shoes, backpacks and school supplies.
