Leadership Team

OLS is a two-time Veracode Secure Developer Award winner, is registered with Certified Payments Professionals and has leadership team members with numerous individual certifications, including CISSP, CISA, CPISM/A and Electronic Transactions Association (ETA) Certified PaymentsProfessional (CPP).

Terry Richards
Founder and President


Mr. Richards founded On-Line Strategies in early 1996 to, in his words, "provide better and more honest production support for online transaction processing customers. When OLS was born, hardware companies were buying software companies and the resultant focus was on selling computers to new customers, instead of supporting and strategically helping the existing base. Our mission was to change all that - and we have - growing rapidly and consistently ever since".

Formerly a VP with Shared Financial and S2 Systems for over 12 years, Mr. Richards led the companies' technical and professional services infrastructures, providing support and guidance to many of the world's largest banks, retailers, healthcare organizations and financial services providers. In the years prior, he held leadership positions with Pacific Technologies, Banking Systems and Affiliated Computer Services.

He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Tarleton State University.


Andy Orrock
Chief Operating Officer


Mr. Orrock has been involved with complex, mission critical transaction processing systems and workflow optimization for over 25 years. He joined On-Line Strategies in 2002, and serves not only as COO, but in numerous leadership roles involving software and project management, customer and business development, technical guidance, research and development and ongoing strategic planning.

Before joining OLS, Mr. Orrock managed the day-to-day operations of Tosco's critical payments system and its support team, handling in excess of $4 billion a year in payment transactions. Prior to that, he was employed by S2 Systems, pioneers in payment processing. His role at S2 was a mixture of IT analyst, business process engineer, project manager, technical sales support and account manager.

Mr. Orrock earned his undergraduate degree from Bates College and holds an MBA from Rice University.

David Bergert, CPP
Chief Technology Officer


Mr. Bergert, involved with payment systems, transaction processing and payment card security for over 12 years, joined On-Line Strategies in 2007, where he now leads the company's technology team and is responsible for both product development and strategic technology direction.

Before joining OLS, he was a manager in RSM McGladrey's Technology Risk Management Services practice, responsible for various IT risk management consulting services including PCI assessments and bank security reviews. During his career, Mr. Bergert has directed data center operations, network operations, strategic IT development, and security and risk management, and has developed many cutting-edge products and services.

He holds a BA in Accounting and an MBA, both from St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, and has attained various professional certifications including CISSP, CISA and is also a former PCI QSA. He was also an inaugural Electronic Transactions Association (ETA) Certified Payments Professional (CPP).


Ron Barker, CPP
Business Development Director


Mr. Barker began leading On-Line Strategies' business development and technical project management functions in early 2010. Bringing a wealth of experience in online transaction processing and over 20 years with ACI Worldwide, he has served as a software design engineer, product architect, and manager / director for BASE24, BASE24-eps and Proactive Risk Manager products. He has worked closely with many of the largest banks in the world helping to ensure their business, operational and technical requirements and visions were understood and fulfilled.

He is the go-to professional for all things "project" at OLS, working closely with customers and prospects to define winning business and technology strategies, and then fine-tuning the resultant project management plans to ensure on-time, on budget performance and significant, measurable operating results.

Mr. Barker holds his undergraduate degree from Nebraska Wesleyan University and a Master of Science in Computer Science from the University of Nebraska Lincoln. He was also an inaugural Electronic Transactions Association (ETA) Certified Payments Professional (CPP).
