Tom Roles, the retiring founder and chief executive of Eagan-based North American Communications Resource (NACR) will be replaced by newcomer John Lyons, according to press release issued by the company last week.
Lyons, the former president of S1 IT Solutions, also served as the executive vice president of services for NACR, heading up the company's maintenance and managed services operations. Lyons has more than 30 years of experience in the technology industry and has previously served as CEO of Mimeo.com and a divisional president at Entex Information Services, the press release said. Lyons began his career at IBM and is a graduate of Syracuse University.
"Under Tom’s guidance, NACR has earned the reputation of trusted advisor, delivering expert services and personalized levels of support to help customers maximize the performance of their communications environments,” Lyons wrote in the press release. "My goal is to continue that vision as we expand NACR’s strategic services in order to provide even greater value for customers’ evolving technology and business needs."
Launched in 1993, NACR is a communications solutions and services integrator serving over 5,500 clients ranging from small businesses to Fortune 100 companies. NACR is owned by ConvergeOne, which also owns S1 IT Solutions.
“With his impressive leadership skills and industry experience, John has already played an important role in the growth of the ConvergeOne companies, and we are excited about his new role in helping to shape the future of NACR,” said ConvergeOne President and CEO John McKenna. “Under his leadership, I know NACR will continue to excel in meeting customer needs and leading the way in solution integration and support.”
