A local office technology company has named a new president.
Grand Rapids-based Michigan Office Solutions, or MOS, said last week it appointed Paul Hartley to the role.
He succeeds former MOS President Ralph Slider.
“I am greatly humbled and honored to follow Ralph into the role as president of Michigan Office Solutions,” Hartley said. “I am looking forward to building on his success of MOS through connecting with our customers, continued dedication of our employees and supporting our communities.”
Previously, Hartley held several leadership positions with Xerox: SVP and managing director of constituent and government software solutions; chief of strategy; VP of acquisition operations; managing director of health care recovery service; SVP of business transformation; and SVP and general manager.
While serving as VP of acquisition operations, Hartley played a key role in the acquisition of GIS, which owned MOS, by Xerox and was in charge of the integration office to ensure a smooth transition.
Hartley holds a B.S. in engineering from Youngstown State and a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Carnegie University.
Michigan Office Solutions has served Michigan for more than 55 years as a provider of office products and document management solutions.
The company was acquired by GIS in 2002, and GIS was acquired by Xerox in 2007.
