Kurt Gallo joined Crane Co. in early 2008, as the General Manager of Crane’s payment solution businesses. Between 2008 and 2011 he drove the consolidation and harmonization of the three separate businesses into a unified business known as Crane Payment Solutions (CPS). In 2011 he oversaw the acquisition and integration of the Money Controls coin business into CPS and was named President in 2012. From 2008 to 2013 the business grew at an average annual growth rate of 7%, achieving $180M of revenue. In 2014 Crane acquired MEI and Kurt was asked to lead the newly created Crane Payment Innovation (CPI) business. Throughout the integration process, the CPI business continued to outperform expectations, over-delivering on synergies savings and driving strong year-over-year operating performance growth. In 2019, Kurt was promoted to Senior Vice President overseeing Crane Co.’s Payment and Merchandising Technology Platform.
Prior to joining Crane, Kurt spent nine years with the Danaher Corporation where he held progressively larger President roles, running three different businesses across the Power Quality Group and Dental Platform. Prior to Danaher, he spent nine years with American Power Conversion (a division of Group Schneider) as the business leader for their retail unit and as the Midwest Regional Sales Manager.
Kurt has a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the University of Michigan and an MBA in Finance and Marketing from the University of Chicago.
