RALEIGH, NC – The Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) recently announced the hiring of John Grega as a Business Development Specialist.

One of the drivers of the RSPA’s success is attracting growth-oriented retail technology solution providers to our already strong community. John will play a key role in that area and in the success of our members.” 

As an RSPA Business Development Specialist, Grega will play a key role in driving new membership sales and will act as a trusted business advisor to prospective members. Grega’s addition to the RSPA team is significant as he will focus on accelerating the growth of the association by recruiting high-quality retail IT VARs, ISVs, and vendors to join the RSPA community.
