When ACS experienced intense growth in 2006, we brought in Bill Bafford, a former U.S. Navy officer and aviator, to fill the roles of Executive Vice President and Operations Manager. With many years of leadership, technology and operational expertise, Bill brought strong organizational skills to the ACS team and led development of ACS’s sophisticated data-driven ERP and CMS systems, affectionately called ERTIS, which track every step of the customer repair process and equipment history. Success is in the details, and as Bill says, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it!” Bill makes measuring and orderliness a fine art. Bill is also well-versed in electronics repair and is often the sage voice that helps customers work through troubleshooting difficult problems

Mark’s deep experience with all sides of the business empowered him with the perfect skillset to be ACS’s Repair Manager. Electronics became a second career for Mark, after he found himself fascinated with how computers are used to control systems in manufacturing. This led him back to school for advanced studies in both areas. Mark has been in the electronics field for 21 years, as a technician, quality control technician, technical salesperson, and manager. He enjoys the crucial role of solving problems to meet the needs of his customers, both external and internal. As the oldest of six children, Mark says, ”I learned that communication is as much listening as it is speaking. This has served me well in my career–but it was a not a lesson that was easily learned.”

A Maryland native, Meg joined the ACS team in 2008, and brought her special super powers to this mission-critical ACS position: a friendly, empathetic personality, a strong skillset and tremendous drive. With customer service being ACS’s number one priority, the company needed a leader who truly cares about every customer and knows how to “get stuff done.” When Meg is not at ACS solving your electronic repair crises, she is penning novels and raising six kids. As we said, Meg knows how to “get stuff done!”
