Strategic Realignment of Managed Print Services Association
Mt. Laurel, NJ (December 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.
“In an effort to improve our effectiveness and support the ideas of our volunteer leadership team, the MPSA Board has approved these changes,” noted Joe Barganier, who was elected Interim President of the MPSA. “This coordinated transition ensures members can benefit from the diversity of experience we have to offer at the leadership level. We are all very excited about taking on our new challenges.”
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. “His background on the industry side will be extremely valuable in his new role representing a key segment of the association,” said Barganier.
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 in the Industry
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.
