Management Team

Kevin Van Kannel

Kevin Van Kannel President

Having spent 18 years working in the office equipment industry for the “large box retailers/finance companies”, I always believed there was a better way to take care of customers. I want our customers to appreciate the creative ways we can apply the latest technology to their office/workflow needs, and see the value of the many flexible programs from their local hometown company.

In building meaningful relationships and creating a buying experience that exceeds customer expectations, I can be a role model for my three kids. I want them to realize that a business can be successful by earning trust and giving back to the community. It’s important for them to understand there are other ways to build a business but none as rewarding as doing it the right way.

On a personal note, I want to take this chance to publicly thank my supportive and beautiful wife, Carolyn. Without her support and understanding, this dream wouldn’t be possible. Thank you to my wonderful kids Grace, Grant, and Anna for all of their support and sacrifices as we embark on this journey together as a family.
