Collins Smee joined Xerox in September 2018 as chief commercial officer, spearheading the development and delivery of Xerox’s integrated technology solutions and services strategy. Since early 2020, she has served as executive vice president and chief commercial, SMB and Channels Officer, leading the Xerox Business Solutions (XBS) team, which delivers products and services to SMB clients across the U.S., as well as the company’s Channels Business.
Before joining Xerox, she led Technology Transformation Services for the U.S. federal government and spent more than 25 years at IBM in global executive roles, including client sales, support, and delivery of technical products and services. Collins Smee also serves as the executive sponsor of the National Black Employees Association (NBEA) employee resource group.
“Xerox continues to be a leader for cloud, digitization and printing solutions, and I’m proud of the technologies and services we’ve created to help our customers adapt to the changing hybrid workforce of today,” said Collins Smee. “I look forward to supporting our teams as we advance company innovations to deliver our best technologies and services to meet customers’ evolving needs.”
