Copiers Northwest’s CFO, John Hines, was recently named a 2020 Difference Maker by ENX Magazine, a national publication that reports on office technology dealers and manufacturers. Hines was recognized for playing a significant role in Copiers Northwest becoming one of the USA’s largest and most successful dealerships and for his volunteer work to help improve the office technology industry.

In addition to his 30 year career as a key member of Copiers Northwest’s executive team, the Issaquah resident has given his time, knowledge, and expertise to supporting the office technology industry by being a board member for the Business Technology Association (BTA). Hines is a veteran of the U.S. Navy and received his B.A. from the University of Washington and his MBA from Seattle University.

“Being recognized nationally for my efforts is nice, but my real reward has come from being an integral part of growing this business into a regional force,” said Hines, who is an avid biker and devoted Washington Huskies fan. “Plus, watching our customers become better businesses due to the products and services we provide is extremely fulfilling and makes me feel that my career has truly made a difference.”

“John has been making a difference for Copiers Northwest since the first day he walked in the door,” said Gregg Petrie, Copiers Northwest’s Co-Founder and President. “John’s overall passion for the business and his willingness to step into multiple leadership roles has been a driving force in the longevity and overall success of Copiers Northwest.”
