ProCopy Office Solutions Leadership Involved in Key Boards & Councils
Tuesday, September 06, 2016
BTA member ProCopy Office Solutions has made a continued commitment to the office technology Industry by being part of the leadership of several key industry boards and councils.
ProCopy Founder Tim Stevenson is beginning his second year on the Canon Dealer Advisory Council.
"It is a huge honor to be asked to serve on the Canon Dealer Advisory Counsel and is something I have been interested in since becoming an Authorized Canon Dealer in 2008," Stevenson said. "Most of the other dealer principals came from sales or finance backgrounds. I began working on Canon copiers as a technician at 15 while I was still in high school. I think I have a unique perspective that has allowed me to provide significant input during my first year on the counsel. It has also risen the profile of ProCopy inside the Canon community, as we are seeing a lot more dealers around the country using us for their clients with offices in Arizona, knowing we will treat them like our own clients."
In June, ProCopy President Mike McGuirk was named to the National Ricoh Dealer Advisory Counsel. ProCopy represents both Canon and Ricoh and is the only company in the country represented on both counsels. In addition, McGuirk has been asked to serve on the Business Technology Association's (BTA's) West district board of directors. He has also added to the board of the Select Dealer Group (SDG), a BTA collaboration of 40 companies from different markets that get together several times a year to share best practice and stack rank results. ProCopy is beginning its fourth year in SDG.
"I am thrilled to serve on the Ricoh National Dealer Advisory Board and the two BTA boards," McGuirk said. "The Ricoh group, along with Tim in the Canon group, really shows how much ProCopy has grown over the past six years and has served as an innovator in our industry. SDG has proven to be invaluable to us as we learn from some of the best dealers around the country like Loffler from Minnesota and AIS in Dallas. BTA has been serving our industry for more than 90 years, and working with Brent Hoskins, Bob Goldberg and the rest of its fantastic team and helping to shape the next 90 years is almost a dream come true."
Stevenson and McGuirk began working together at a local Phoenix, Arizona, dealership in 1985. They both moved into senior management when the company was sold to Danka in 1993. They reunited at ProCopy in 2010 and have grown the company's revenue and profits six-fold in six years. During that time, the company was named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing U.S. companies three times, was named one of the top 50 dealerships in the United States by ENX Magazine twice and was named one of the "Best Places to Work" by the Phoenix Business Journal. Last year, ProCopy was named a Canon "Premier Dealer" and a Ricoh "Circle of Excellence" Service Dealer, both companies' highest honors.
