RSPA Announces Departure of Kelly Funk

CHARLOTTE, NC | May 2, 2017 – The RSPA announced today that Kelly Funk, president and CEO, will leave the Association, and a search has begun for a permanent replacement. 

“I will be stepping away from RSPA to spend time focusing on my family,” says Funk. “As such, I will recommend and support the executive committee as they begin the selection process for a new RSPA president. I’m grateful for my time with the Association, and have a great respect and appreciation for the entire RSPA membership.”

Funk has served the RSPA as CEO and president since April of 2014. During her tenure with the RSPA, Funk worked, among many other things, to strengthen membership growth, expand the Association’s marketing and outreach programs, and grow the RSPA’s major annual event, RetailNOW.

“As the president and CEO of RSPA, Kelly led the charge to drive the RSPA forward in the point of sale technology ecosystem,” says Tom Reichart, chairman of the board of directors for RSPA. “During her tenure, the RSPA expanded their value-add footprint on many fronts including membership services, industry education venues, legal assistance, scholarship campaigns, and affinity programs. We thank her for her years of service, and wish her well in her future endeavors.” # # #
