Bob Leone, President, is a 40+ year veteran of the office equipment industry. After working 20 years with Xerox Corporation, Bob started his own business and became partners with them in 1994.
At Xerox, Mr. Leone was highly regarded as one of the top marketing executives in the company, earning 19 President’s Clubs – an award for excellent performance. Leone started as a Sales Representative right out of college and was promoted to Product Specialist, Sales Manager and Regional Manager for the Western region over the years.
Since founding MRC, alone in January 1994, Mr. Leone has built an $80+ million dollar business – with offices in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, Pleasanton, Hayward, San Francisco, as well as a newly opened site in Palm Desert. Global Imaging Systems acquired MRC in October of 2009 and continues to run it as a wholly owned subsidiary.
MRC’s company culture is defined best by our padlock – Family/Relationships first, then health/personal development, followed by work, and then a focus on community/philanthropy. As an advocate for the San Diego Homeless, Bob recognizes that the growth of a community is not just established by its businesses, but also by what its people give back. In addition to helping you transform your business, MRC is fiercely dedicated to transforming our communities and the lives of our neighbors. Through our annual Technology Makeover, MRC has awarded over $35,000 to local non-profits to help them expand their technological infrastructure, so that they can spend their resources directly towards their cause. MRC is also proud to partner with and sponsor various philanthropic causes throughout the year – including, but not limited to Father Joe’s Villages, the Alpha Project, Semper Fi Fund, San Diego Rescue Mission, and Habitat for Humanity, as well as various food, blood, and toy drives in our local communities.
Being customer centric remains at the forefront of Leone’s vision for MRC. The foundation of our relationships are founded on world-class customer service, and cultivated through partnership. MRC helps identify opportunities that help transform and position your business for success by maximizing your technology return on investment. We help you uncover hidden inefficiencies while delivering cost-saving opportunities – with us it’s not just about stability, but sustainability.
By investing in you – our customers, employees, vendors and others, we are able to strengthen our relationships, build a better business, and work with better people.
