Josh Gerson



From a very young age, Josh’s passion for the copier business was evident. He spent his free time learning the inner workings of the copiers that had been taken out of commission by disassembling and categorizing every piece of the machine, and accompanied his uncle and Ford Office Technologies’ founder, John Garlow, on sales and service calls.

At the age of 17, Josh decided to proudly serve his country by enlisting in the Army. After multiple, highly decorated, combat tours in Iraq and a distinguished military career, Josh once again returned to the industry he fell in love with as a young boy. In 2015, Josh was named the Vice President of Operations and established as a co-owner of Ford Office Technologies, overseeing Ford’s managed IT, document management, and service departments, as well as the overall company policies and procedures. In 2023, Josh was named President and oversees all operational aspects of the company.

Josh continues to serve his community through various volunteer roles that include the YMCA Board of Directors, the Fayette Area Coordinated Transportation Board of Directors, serves as Treasurer of Twin Trees, a non-profit offering services and support for people with intellectual disabilities, and also serves on the Advisory Committee for the Fayette County Career & Technical Institute’s IT program.

Josh loves spending outdoor time with his family, skiing throughout the Laurel Highlands area, and watching his children participate in sporting events. Josh also looks forward to establishing Ford Office Technologies as the dominant technology services provider in the tri-state area.
