North American dealer technology provider System Solutions (SSI) has announced a change in its senior management structure.
Former VP John Evans has been named as the company President, effective immediately. Evans has been involved with the office products industry since 1988 in a range of positions. In 2003, he and SSI founder Terry Kelly purchased SSI from PointForce and Evans has served as VP ever since.
The Canada-based company, which announced its webstore redesign in May, stressed the change will be “virtually invisible to customers”.
Former President Charles Russell said: “Terry and I aren’t going anywhere […] but with the youngest member of senior management taking a more visible role, dealers can be confident that we are making plans for the future.”
He added: “The three of us have always had specific areas of responsibility: John handles sales, I oversee operations, and Terry manages the financial side of the business. That’s not going to change. But SSI has been growing and, with John taking on additional management duties, I will have more time to focus on software development, customer support and dealer installations.”
There are no changes in the software provider’s ownership, which consists of Evans, Kelly and Russell.
