Ernie Crawford – the making of Crawford Technologies; Part 2


We’ve already heard about the entrepreneurial spirit ingrained into Ernie Crawford’s early life, and how various programming roles started him on the route to creating Crawford Technologies. But what career move really made the difference?

Ernie joined Xerox Canada in 1983, where electronic printing was still a fledgling business. He took on a role as the National Technical Manager, building an organization to provide technical support to analysts and customers. Ernie also provided marketing support to the Canadian sales organization, and participated in many of the program teams in the USA.
