Meet Our Founder

Ray Stasieczko

CEO

For nearly 30 years, I have called the Imaging Channel home. In that time, I have owned dealerships, served in senior leadership roles, and offered consulting services to help others transition. I am proud to have been a pioneer in both Managed IT Services and Managed Print Services. My vision continues to recognize early what many in the industry refuses to believe.

My vision for TEASRA, The Innovation Channel, was born of my passion for delivering the future to the present. It’s with an understanding that all reseller channels are at the mercy of these dynamically innovative times, and it’s only through collaboration and a willingness to look where others do not, which eventually separates the innovators from those stuck in the status quo.
