Global Imaging Systems, Inc. was founded in 1994 by Thomas S. Johnson with financial backing from the venture capital firm, Golder Thoma Cressey Rauner. His vision was to create a leading organization in the highly fragmented office automation industry, through a decentralized structure, in partnership with quality entrepreneurs. During the years that followed, his vision became a reality.
On June 17, 1998, Global became a publicly-owned company when it completed its initial public offering. Global continued to grow organically and through acquisitions, and exceeded one billion dollars in revenue during the fiscal year ended March 31, 2006.
On May 11, 2007, Global was acquired by Xerox Corporation. Global continues to operate as an independent wholly owned subsidiary of Xerox, offering the complete range of Xerox products.
