Rounding out the Q&A series, we chat with board member and longtime membership chair Kevin Morris.
Q: How long have you been involved in the MPSA and in what role/s?
A: I was elected to the MPSA Board of Directors in 2012. I have been serving as the Membership Chairman since I was first elected to our board.
Q: What experience do you bring to this role?
A: I have been in the office equipment industry for 36 years and have been in Managed Print Services for 18 years. I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Contrary to a lot of public press, I believe that our future is very bright. We simply need to remember the genesis of our industry and learn ways to better serve our clients through continually offering the best possible solutions to meet our client's ever-changing needs.
Q: What changes or opportunities are you seeing in MPS that excite you the most?
A: Honestly, the thing that excites me most is people saying that MPS is dead. From my contrarian point of view, I believe that it couldn't be further from the truth. Our company continues to grow at a solid rate by putting the "M" in Managed Print Services. I rarely see a competitor who offers anything more than selling equipment with service and supplies and calling it MPS. At our company, we truly manage our clients workforce automation.
Q: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time when you're not at work?
A: I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my family, traveling to countries across the globe and finding the best food and wine available anywhere!
