Reseller Board Member
About BJ: Upon being graduated from Wingate University (1964), Western Carolina University (1966) and completing a year of military active duty, I became employed with NCR Corporation in 1967 as a student salesperson. I took early retirement as a senior account manager in order to begin a career with Century Data Systems and helped to drive the company to the largest independent POS provider in the United States as vice president of sales. Upon the sale of the company, and a move to Myrtle Beach, SC in 1997, I created Merchant Data Solutions as a Hospitality POS reseller and have been growing this company for the past 18 years. I strongly believe that the blend of new blood and innovation, plus the contributions from someone with my longevity, an integral part of my roots in this business, are components that will make the chain stronger for this superior association. This industry is what I know. Instead of ever wanting to learn something different, I have simply wanted to learn all there is to know about this profession and how to do it well. My involvement as member and past board member of RSPA, as well as that of my wife Ann, has been dedicated to scholarships, growing membership and education. Quite frankly, by playing an active role in this industry related association, I feel that Ann and I can continue to contribute to the payback that has always been important and always will be.
