Xerox Holdings today announced that it has appointed Xavier Heiss as chief financial officer, a role he’s filled on an interim basis since the end of September. He reports to John Visentin, Xerox vice chairman and chief executive officer.
Heiss replaces William Osbourn, who announced in September 2020 that he will leave the company for personal reasons, effective September 30th.
Heiss, a 32-year Xerox veteran, has served in various leadership positions in finance, business transformation, and sales during his career. Most recently, he led Xerox’s EMEA Operations as executive vice president and president. He previously served as controller of the company and chief financial officer of the company’s Americas Operations. His appointment is effective January 1, 2021.
Visentin commented: “Xavier combines a deep understanding of the financials with a clear vision for renewing Xerox’s growth. His well-established relationships across the business and with global customers position him well to help speed our transformation at a critical time in the company’s history.”
“Xerox’s transformation positions it for long-term success and growth in and beyond the printing business,” said Heiss. “I look forward to supporting John in delivering strong results for employees, investors, clients and other stakeholders.”
