Bio - Mark Ford, CEO
Mark Ford graduated from California State University, Fresno with a BS degree in Business Law and Marketing. Shortly thereafter, Mark worked as an entrepreneur with a family owned real estate development company in the U.S. and Indonesia. In 1982, Mark began a six-year career with Moore Corporation (now R.R. Donnelly), one of the world’s largest business print management companies.
Mark started with Altec in 1988 as Vice President of Marketing, and grew Altec into a highly successful customer-centric organization focused on delivering the best designed products with the quickest turnaround time. Mark pioneered a new pathway to excellence that has resulted in the highest prospect-to-customer conversion and retention rates in the industry.
In 1992, Mark was part of the management team when Epicor Software Corporation (formerly Platinum Software) launched its IPO. In 1994, Mark, along with Mark Tague, Chief Financial Officer, purchased Altec, which was then a subsidiary of Epicor Software. With the subsequent acquisition of Brook Hollow Inc. in November, 2000, Altec added Integrated Document Management (IDM) software solutions to its product mix and executed a strategic initiative of supplying paper to paperless solutions to the mid-market.
Altec has reached new heights with marketing agreements and alliances in the software accounting world and other industries. Today, Altec has grown into a leader of Enterprise Document Management solutions for the mid-market, providing print, MICR and Integrated Document Management solutions to business software users worldwide.
