Dan Cooper is New CEO of Novatech
Dan Cooper, who was previously president of Xerox’s Global Imaging Systems (now called Xerox Business Solutions), has been named CEO of managed IT and print-services provider, Novatech, Inc. Founder Darren Metz will continue his ownership interest and will take on a new role as executive chairman.
Cooper joined Xerox’s Global Imaging Systems (GIS) subsidiary, Electronic Systems (ESI), in 1999 and was appointed to the position of president in 2000. Under his leadership, ESI, an early pioneer in providing managed IT services, grew to into one of the largest within the GIS portfolio. In 2005, Cooper was promoted to the GIS’s headquarters, where he was responsible for overseeing the operation of companies across the U.S. He retired from GIS as president in August 2018. Prior to joining ESI, he spent 10 years with Danka Industries, where he served as a regional general manager.
“I want to honor the culture of bold entrepreneurism that has led Novatech since its founding. Darren Metz did an incredible job in growing this enterprise and achieving great success with customers in the marketplace. I am looking forward to continuing to build on this foundation and leading this organization into the future,” Cooper stated.
Empowered by the capital support of private-equity firm Trivest Partners, Novatech says it will “continue its aggressive expansion plan across the United States to become a national leader of managed IT and print services.”
As the integration between software, solutions, equipment and networks into the managed office ecosystem continues, Cooper is said to bring a vision and background to Novatech that will further propel expansion of its footprint. “Companies that stop listening to their customers and their employees are the ones who falter. By listening to these key voices, we can provide incredible experiences for our customers, going above and beyond in customer satisfaction. I’m ready to get to work on the next exciting chapter here at Novatech and take the company’s IT and managed office services throughout the U.S.”
