Attending RSPA’s RetailNOW 2012 show next month? Don’t forget to vote in the election for RSPA Board of Directors. All RSPA members are invited to vote in the board member election on Monday, July 30th, 10:15-11:45 a.m.
On the ballot again this year is Tom Reichart, VP of Business Development at Mercury Payment Systems. Tom won a seat on the board in 2009 and is up for re-election this year.
If you know Tom Reichart, (chances are you do!), then you know how passionate he is about the retail technology industry. Tom got started in this industry 40 years ago as a cash register salesman for NCR in 1972. He’s come a long way since then.
Before retiring from NCR in 2004, he held senior management positions in domestic and international operations. In 2006 he joined the team at Mercury Payment Systems where he is the VP of business development. In his role, Tom helps Mercury’s partners grow their businesses with the latest technology solutions and subscription based revenue.
Tom has a gift for understanding reseller businesses and their needs. He is passionate about technology innovation and how it can help VARs and ISVs achieve their business goals. Tom also helps businesses reach their goals by advocating the support and resources provided by an RSPA membership.
Tom was affiliated with RSPA before it was even known as RSPA. For the past 15 years he has been a member and continues to dedicate himself to the success of the organization and its members. Since joining the board in 2009, he has helped the membership committee increase RSPA membership by 250 members.
Tom is an asset to the RSPA board of directors and we hope to see him remain on the board for another three years. If you’re attending RetailNOW, be sure to vote!
