Kum & Go Increases "Intelligent" Focus

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Kum & Go LC, operator of more than 430 convenience stores headquartered here, is developing a new business intelligence (BI) department that will expand the BI function at the company, the convenience retailer stated. To that end, the company hired Terry Montgomery to head the project, joining Kum & Go as its vice president of business intelligence, the company stated.

"Terry will be a fundamental part of the Kum & Go team as he diligently works to build a new department," Kyle Krause, president and CEO, said in a statement.

Terry's direction and guidance will help us continue to uphold our standard as being the best in the industry when it comes to providing high-level, quality customer service."

The BI department will be responsible for creating a higher level of reporting and business analysis, which will lead to more accountable and enhanced customer service, Kum & Go stated.

He also spent ten years working with Younkers and its parent organization, Saks Inc., in both senior vice president and vice president roles, the company stated.
