MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) January 19, 2018
Sezzle Inc., a leader in retail payments, announced today that it has added Senior Vice President and General Manager of Infor Retail, Corey Tollefson, to its growing advisory board. Tollefson will provide counsel on the quick growth seen at Sezzle, and ensure that the company continues to accelerate as they begin partnering with larger brands and retailers.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have Corey on board.” said Paul Paradis, chief business development officer, Sezzle. “He will be instrumental in our efforts to scale our payment platform across the global retail industry.”
Tollefson brings more than 20 years of industry experience, having worked with some of the largest retailers in the world. As the leader of Infor’s retail division, he is responsible for leading a global team to develop, market and service Infor’s cloud-based, retail suite of applications. His organizational design principle is to serve retailers in a more strategic 21st century fashion; based upon shared success while providing a relationship that enables digital transformations. Prior to joining Infor, Tollefson held a variety of roles in retail, including software development, license sales and product strategy, and holds a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Management Information Systems from Saint Cloud State University - G.R. Herberger College of Business.
Sezzle is an alternative payment platform that helps merchants increase online sales by enabling shoppers to pay for their purchases with interest-free installment plans.
Sezzle is shown to increase sales by up to 25% and basket sizes by up to 70% for their merchant customers.
“Infor Retail prides itself on being a leader, not only in retail applications, but by fostering a movement into next-gen applications. Sezzle aligns with that mission. Their platform solves a major problem for both merchants and consumers,” said Tollefson. “Access to credit has dried up for many young consumers over the past decade. Sezzle provides an easy to use, financially responsible way for young consumers to pay for their purchases over time, which in turn helps merchants increase sales. It’s a win-win.”
Charlie Youakim, CEO of Sezzle, concurred. “Corey’s expertise and his commitment to innovation within the retail industry will drive us to make better decisions, and ultimately, to success as a company. We look forward to his ongoing guidance and support for many years to come.”
Sezzle is a company focused on giving the next generation more credit. Sezzle’s exciting new payment platform helps consumers gain access to additional purchasing power via interest-free installment plans. This increase in purchasing power increases sales and lifts order values for Sezzle merchants. Sezzle uses a proprietary algorithm rather than traditional credit checks when making credit decisions, enabling them to approve approximately 100% more applicants than other consumer financing solutions.
