The Mobile Payment Forum has also appointed Alessandra Dell'Otti, Vodafone, as steering group chair for the organization. The steering group is responsible for the review and approval of all technical activities of the Mobile Payment Forum, as determined by the board of directors, including overseeing the Forum's three working groups.
