Xerox promotes two executives

Rochester Business Journal
January 13, 2014

Xerox Corp. Monday made two executive appointments.

Jeff Jacobson will serve as chief operating officer of Xerox Technology, and Andrew Copley has been named president of Xerox Graphic Communications Operations.
Both will have offices in Webster and Norwalk, Conn.

In his role, Jacobson will focus on continuing to broaden and strengthen Xerox’s hardware and software portfolio, driving supply chain efficiencies and delivering results in the Technology Global Shared Services and Graphic Communications Operations groups.
Jacobson joined Xerox in February 2012 from Presstek Inc., where he had served as the company’s president and CEO since 2007. Prior to his role at Presstek, Jacobson was chief operating officer of Eastman Kodak Co.’s $3.6 billion Graphic Communications Group. He also served for five years as CEO of Kodak Polychrome Graphics, a $1.7 billion joint venture of Sun Chemical and Kodak.

“Driving competitiveness and achieving benchmark operational excellence are critical planks of our technology business strategy,” Jacobson said in a statement. “These changes reflect that commitment as well as our continued focus on the graphic communications industry.”
Copley will assume leadership of the worldwide strategy, operations, product development, marketing, sales and support for go-to-market and graphic communications customers. He will concentrate efforts on enhancing Xerox’s cut-sheet and inkjet portfolios, further enabling customers’ digital transition through software and services, as well as simplifying and optimizing overall global graphic communications operations.     
A 25-year veteran of the commercial print industry, Copley joined Xerox in 2012 as senior vice president of its Graphic Communications Business Group, after serving as chief commercial officer of Precision Valve Technologies.
