LAUREL, MD., May 21, 2023 — Short Term Copier, the nation’s leading short-term copier and business equipment rental company, today announced its acquisition by Tim Ericson, founder and former CEO of Zagster. Ericson enters the company as CEO on the heels of co-founder Jack Miller, who announced his retirement from the organization earlier this year. Co-owner Kevin McCleaf will stay on with the company as Director of Sales.
Ericson joins Short Term Copier with over a decade of leadership experience. After founding Zagster in 2007, Ericson guided the company through its startup phase — personally spearheading both sales and operations — until needs began to scale. From there, Ericson transitioned to an executive role and worked to further expand Zagster’s brand presence across the US. Ericson aims to leverage that past experience to increase service and deliverability, further streamlining the customer experience.
“At Zagster, we needed teams and warehouses around the country in order to service, deliver, and maintain our assets in the field,” said Ericson, “We’re doing the same thing with Short Term Copier. I’m excited to join a team of incredible professionals who have already built a great business.”
However, Ericson will be a new face in a familiar crowd, as the majority of existing talent will remain throughout the transition. Together, with McCleaf guiding the sales team, Ericson seeks to take advantage of new market opportunities while expanding team operations.
