Xerox has announced that Canadian executive John Corley will lead Xerox Canada Limited. Corley will return to Canada after recently serving as President of Global Channel Partner Operations and as Vice President for Xerox Corporation in the United States. A 22-year Xerox veteran, Corley has held a variety of executive positions during his tenure. Prior to his most recent role running Global Channel Operations, he was the Vice President of Canadian Operations. After joining Xerox in 1994 as a sales representative in Toronto, he progressed quickly into senior roles in sales and marketing and was named one of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40 in 2008. Founded in 1995 by Caldwell Partners, Canada’s Top 40 Under 40 celebrates the achievements of 40 Canadians in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, who have demonstrated remarkable success before passing the age of 40.
Corley’s mandate will be to expand Xerox’s market leadership position in Canada. He will be responsible for the Canadian go-to-market strategy, operations, marketing, sales and services delivery for small, medium and enterprise-size clients. “This is an exciting time for Xerox – a remarkable company that I’m privileged to have begun my career with and continue to grow with,” Corley added. “Over the years, Xerox has helped shape the way our clients connect, communicate and work, and we continue to build upon a foundation of innovation to grow our leadership in the areas of office and graphic communications technology and document outsourcing services.” Corley replaces Al Varney who will take on a new role as President of Northern, Southern and Central European Operations.
