Thursday 17 September 2009 @ 16:25 - GMT

A leading company specialising in both bricks and mortar and wireless merchant payment solutions, today announced the addition of Russ Regan to the their advisory board.

Recently Regan served as Vice President of Music Licensing with Instant Media Network, the world's largest provider of music content and services to the lodging industry and brings to Commerce Online a track record of success in the entertainment industry spanning over four decades.

Russ has headed up labels such as Motown and Polygram, and is directly credited with playing a key role in the success of dozens of recording artists, including Elton and the Beach Boys.

 Mr. Regan is one of only a few record executives in the world who has had a number one record in each of the last four decades, and during his career has racked up sales of over one billion records worldwide. He also supervised the soundtracks for movies ranging from The Karate Kid to Spinal Tap.

"Having an icon like Mr. Regan as part of our advisory board and working side by side with him is truly a unique honour and privilege to us at Commerce Online. The doors that continue to open for our young company simply because of his accomplishments and reputation in Hollywood will soon propel us into a major provider of merchant services to the entertainment, infomercial and pay for view space. Already in his first month with the company, we have grown our merchant processing services through our alliances to over $400,000 a month credited to Mr. Regan. Our strategy of providing merchant services to product infomercials through Mr. Regan's contacts could account for millions in revenues and sales of these products worldwide through celebrity product endorsements and credit card services," stated Michael Friedman for Commerce Online.

"Being a part of a start-up like Commerce Online and seeing what they have accomplished in the short time they have been public, truly brings back the entrepreneurial spirit in me. I am looking forward to working with the company and making the proper introductions within the entertainment sector to uniquely set Commerce Online apart from any other company within the merchant services industry," Russ declared.
