Brian’s career began in 1982 as a delivery driver for the predecessor to Data Preservation Solutions, Southern Microfilm Corporation. After continuing his education Brian returned to the family business in 1988 as a salesman learning all facets of the document management business.
Those early days provided a solid foundation upon which Brian and his family launched several additional businesses (Racom, DocuData and Cogniserv), all focused on helping governments and commercial businesses better manage paper and electronic records.
Today, Data Preservation Solutions continues the legacy of superior document management services coupled with recording software and other software products designed to help clients manage their records. Brian’s focus is on directing the team at DPS to provide the very best services and solutions
