Steve Kessler, Klicktrack Co-founder, Cannabis retail pioneer and industry visionary

Steve Kessler began his career as a New York City and LA-based commercial photographer,
where he worked primarily as a still photographer for feature films. Steve also produced and
directed an award-winning feature film in 2007, entitled Getting High, and taught courses at
the New York Film Academy. Following a two-year sabbatical in England, Steve moved to
Seattle in 2011 where he met Grammy-award winning musician Brendan Hill of Blues Traveler
fame. Together he and Brendan helped pioneer the legal cannabis retail industry by totally
rethinking the customer experience, as is well documented in Forbes, CNN, Time, Money, and
Architectural Digest. They were among the first in North America to merchandise by brand in a
highly curated and architecturally pleasing environment. Based on four years of high-volume
cannabis retail operational experience, Steve and Brendan founded KlickTrack to address the
multitude of major problems with all existing point-of-sale (POS) systems by uniting
compliance, flexibility and intelligence. Steve holds a BA in economics from Hobart College.
