New York marketplace. He later was again promoted to General Manager / Vice President for the entire

After a stellar career of 23 years with Ricoh, he decided it was time to start his own dynasty. In 2008, Tim
started ADS with his skilled focus on customer service, building an organization based on honesty,
integrity and reliability. “I was tired of the shady games and dishonesty BIG corporations play with
customers.” ADS has grown substantially in the last 10 years now with over 1200 customers. Talk with
