Brian Kopack Named as IOS's New President

Gary Gushard, owner and president of Imaging Office Systems, announced that Brian Kopack would step into the role of president.  In his announcement to the company, Gary assured the employees that he would still be very involved, that the move was to position the company for growth and allow him to focus on special projects.   Gary said that “Change, the right change, can be extremely productive.”

Brian joined IOS in 2005 as Controller and has been very impactful, in that position, and throughout the company.  Through different projects, including the adoption of IOS’s quality system, he learned in great detail the functions of every department at IOS.   Brian’s strategic vision and leadership has been clear since he joined the company, and that coupled with his very analytical approach makes him ideally suited to take on and succeed in this new role which took effect April 9th, 2012. 

Before making the decision, Gary consulted with IOS’s senior management, Bob Barkley and John Trimble, and they were equally as enthusiastic about the proposed change.
