Usherwood Office Technology appoints Stinson as company president

Ken Stinson

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Usherwood Office Technology on Tuesday said it has promoted Ken Stinson to company president.

Stinson assumes the title previously held by Lou Usherwood, the firm’s CEO, who will continue his work as CEO, the company tells CNYBJ in an email.

In his new duties with the company, Stinson will be responsible for the day-to-day operations and strategic planning for the office-technology company. Usherwood is headquartered at 1005 W. Fayette St. in Syracuse.

Stinson has worked for Usherwood for six years, having served as VP of sales with an effort that increased company revenue by 49 percent in that period. In addition, Stinson helped augment the company’s expansion into New England with the addition of seven new offices and Usherwood’s newest Odyssey distribution center in Auburn, Massachusetts (near Worcester).

Stinson had also worked for more than a decade in the office-technology industry before joining Usherwood, the company noted.

“Ken is the first non-family member to become president of Usherwood Office Technology and our family could not be more proud of our decision,” Lou Usherwood, CEO of Usherwood Office Technology, said. “Ken has a holistic view of our industry and a keen sense of what it takes to be successful in the information technology space. Our goal is to double our revenues in the next five years and Ken is the person to lead us down that path. He has earned the respect of our employees and we are excited to grow into the future with Ken as our nucleus.”

Stinson earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from the University at Buffalo and lives in East Amherst, near Buffalo.

Besides its Syracuse headquarters, Usherwood also has New York branch sales and services offices in Binghamton, New Hartford, Watertown, Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, Jamestown, Potsdam, and Plattsburgh. It also has locations outside New York that include Burlington, Vermont; Hartford, Connecticut; Auburn and Boston, Massachusetts; Providence, Rhode Island; and Manchester and West Lebanon, New Hampshire, per the company release.
