Results thru Strategy

Christopher Sebes has spent his entire career in hospitality management and technology.  He received a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management in England and managed hotels and restaurants on three continents including multi-unit restaurant operations in Europe and the US. He co-created the first Microsoft Windows point-of-sale company, Twenty20 Visual Systems, which he sold to Radiant Systems. He went on to become the CEO of Progressive Software before founding XPIENT in 2004.  XPIENT was sold to Heartland Payment Systems in 2014 and he was tapped to become the President of Heartland Commerce, a major player in restaurant and retail management technology, which became Xenial after the sale of Heartland to Global Payments in 2016.

He left Xenial and Global Payments in mid-2019 to join Results thru Strategy where his focus is on providing technology strategy advice to operators, private equity owners, and technology companies who are interested in the transformational technology that’s so vital to ensure success in the next decade.
