Overland Park, KS | October 7th, 2019– Retail Success, one of the fastest-growing Fintech companies in the Kansas City area, today announced the appointment of three new C-Suite executives at their Overland Park, KS headquarters.

Kent Galley joins the team as Chief Operating Officer. With extensive and diverse management experience spanning two decades, Galley brings valuable leadership acumen to Retail Success’ executive team. As COO, Galley will lead operations and direct the company’s sales/marketing, technology and administrative functions.

Prior to joining Retail Success, Galley was named Kansas City Business Journal’s 2011 CFO of the Year for his work at Saepio Technologies Inc. He then moved to VeriShip Inc., where, as COO, he oversaw significant fiscal and operational growth. Galley founded a Business Intelligence firm after VeriShip providing him valuable insight around analytics and smart data consumption. Beyond operations and finance management Galley has shared his business knowledge as Adjunct Professor at Baker University’s School of Professional and Graduate Studies, where he continues to teach Critical Thinking, Economics, Accounting, and Law.

Jen Regas comes aboard as Chief Financial Officer. Her exemplary vision and foresight have proven invaluable as Retail Success accelerates the development and deployment of new products. As CFO, Regas will focus on financial outcomes and pursue additional strategic acquisitions that complement Retail Success’s existing suite of products.

Before joining Retail Success, Regas was named Kansas City Business Journal’s CFO of the Year honoree in 2019 for her work at Hallcon Corp. As the CFO for multiple companies across a wide array of industries, Regas brings a diverse experience that aligns perfectly with the high-velocity mentality employed by Retail Success. 

Scott Christensen has been appointed as Retail Success’s first-ever Chief Product Officer. A pillar within the Retail Success lineage, Christensen has been instrumental to the company’s success for the past eight years. As CPO, Christensen will tap into his hands-on experience to identify innovative solutions for the modern omnichannel shopping experience.

For the past two decades, Christensen has lead development teams of all sizes. Most recently, in 2017, he completed a landmark project over six months that generated $2 Billion in retail transactions in its first year. He has deep experience delivering cloud-based, enterprise software, and SAAS managed-services offerings to market driving both product management and product development teams. 

“These three [Galley, Regas, and Christensen] add a wealth of operational, technical, and financial management experience that I am confident will exceed our lofty revenue and velocity goals,” said Scott Maher, Retail Success co-founder, and CEO. “We are excited to have such a well-rounded group of proven professionals at the helm as we continue to expand our product offerings and broaden our customer base.”
