TORONTO, ON – Xerox Canada Inc. announced today the appointment of Kevin M. Warren to president, CEO and chairman of Xerox Canada, effective January 1, 2008. Warren replaces Doug Lord, who will assume the role of president, U.S. Solutions Group, at that time.
A 23-year veteran of Xerox Corporation, Warren previously led the transition of Xerox Corporation's $1.5 billion acquisition of Global Imaging Systems, a U.S. office technology dealer that Xerox acquired in May. He has a strong background in direct sales and sales management, previously serving as senior vice president for Xerox Corporation's U.S. Eastern Sales Operations.
In his new role, Warren will be responsible for all aspects of Xerox Canada, including sales and support of Xerox's portfolio of document technology and services, human resources, marketing, and other operations within the country. Warren will report to James Firestone, president, Xerox North America.
"Xerox Canada has a history of outstanding leaders," says Firestone. "During his tenure, Doug Lord was instrumental in driving Xerox Canada's profitable growth, with annual revenue of close to $1.2 billion. Kevin's extensive sales leadership experience makes him the logical choice to continue to lead Xerox's customer-focused success in the Canadian marketplace."
Warren holds a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from Georgetown University and graduated from the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School. He is on the national board of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and is also a member of the Executive Leadership Council.
