Ron Thompson Jr., President of OSAM Document Solutions, Inc. is carrying on the family tradition of providing leading-edge document management solutions to OSAM’s valued customers. OSAM Document Solutions, Inc. was officially incorporated in Arizona in 1975 when Remington Rand established OSAM as its first dealer partner in the United States. Ron Sr., who was employed by Remington Rand at that time, chose to reposition himself with OSAM and subsequently purchased the company in 1980.
Ron Jr. joined OSAM professionally in 1996, initially selling micrographic and electronic document management solutions meant to replace or enhance paper filing systems. He went on to lead OSAM into the 21st Century with his innovative and forward thinking. Ron Jr. has been a key part of OSAM’s direction and product acquisition since the start. In 2000, Ron Jr. was appointed Vice President, which allowed him to increase his already significant contributions to OSAM’s success. Ron Jr. was promoted to President and CEO of OSAM in 2004, and continued to shape the company into what it is today. He is accountable for the culture, growth, and direction of OSAM; and continues to outperform his and the industry’s past successes year after year.

Trusting in the depth and obvious stability of OSAM, customers and potential customers rely on us for state-of-the-art solutions in document management that are tailored to the individual business needs of each customer.

The company moved on to earn Gold status four years in a row before achieving the even more prestigious honor of Platinum status these past three years and counting.
