Russell Peacock is the New President of Xerox Office Group


STAMFORD, Conn. - Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) has appointed Russell Peacock President of Xerox Office Group. He replaces Tim Williams, who is retiring next month.

Peacock will be responsible for all aspects of Xerox’s global $7.6 billion office business, which includes engineering, development and marketing of Xerox products and services for offices small to large. Peacock and his team are charged with accelerating growth for Xerox’s portfolio of monochrome and color multifunction systems and networked printers; advancing Xerox’s eco-friendly, proprietary solid ink color printing technology; and expanding Xerox’s share of the small and mid-size business market.

Peacock, 48, joined Xerox in 1982 as a field sales representative in London. He has held positions with increasing responsibility in sales, finance, operations and engineering. Most recently, Peacock was the managing director of Xerox United Kingdom. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Wolverhampton.

“Russell brings exceptional customer-focused skills to his new position,” said Ursula Burns, president of Xerox Business Group Operations. “He has played pivotal roles in advancing Xerox’s brand in our global operations and is well positioned to deliver on Xerox’s growth strategy in our office business.

"Russell’s appointment follows the successful tenure of Tim Williams, who has been instrumental in creating Xerox’s broadest array of office products both in the industry and in the history of Xerox. He leaves a rich legacy at Xerox.”

Williams, 55, joined Xerox in 2000 with the acquisition of the Tektronix color printing and imaging division. Prior to joining Tektronix in 1996, Williams held management and engineering positions at Hewlett-Packard.
