Strategic Realignment of Managed Print Services Association (MPSA)
(December 6, 2010) - Key
volunteers and leaders within the Managed Print Services Association executive
committee and board of directors have realigned their roles to focus their
experience on other areas of the MPSA. This will help keep fresh ideas and new
perspectives flowing across all aspects of the association.
Smooth Transition Reflects
Broad Experience of Leadership
Jim Fitzpatrick (Oki Data Americas, Inc.) was elected to the Board of
Directors-Manufacturer Representative, and has resigned as association president
to concentrate on these new duties. He will be extremely valuable in his new
role representing a key segment of the association, said a MPSA spokesperson.
To dedicate more time to the
goals of the Standards Committee, Ken Stewart (Photizo Group) has resigned his
duties as a member of the Board of Directors – Manufacturer Representative. This
change will free him to focus on standards, a top priority for the association
and MPS industry. Elections will be held in the Spring for the positions of
President and the Board of Directors - Manufacturing Representative.
New MPSA President: 19 Years

The new president of the MPSA brings an extensive resume to the job. Joe
Barganier (MT Business Technologies, Inc.) has spent 19 years in the printer and
copier industry and worked for two printer manufacturers: QMS and Ricoh; and
several copier dealers, including IKON Indiana and Van Ausdall and Farrar. In
May 2007, he joined MT Business Technologies, Inc. in Ohio, where he developed
and managed the Total Output Managementâ MPS offering. Barganier earned an MBA
degree from the University of Alabama in 1991. He will continue to serve on the
Board of Directors as Dealer Representative while acting as Interim President.
