Our Executive Team

Whether we’re scanning documents, developing unique software to integrate digital records with your systems, or supporting your document management system, we’re a services company. Our experience, ability to understand your needs, and solution flexibility all stem from our core team members.

Over the years we’ve assembled a fantastic group of folks, many with us for 20+ years. Here’s our executive team, the leaders of the company:


Bill first worked at BMI in the document production area, microfilming county land records and newspapers during high school vacations. After graduating from the University of California at Santa Barbara with his Bachelor’s Degree in English, he returned to BMI in the position of Assistant Production Manager. Working with contracted consultants in automating the production process, Bill was involved in all aspects of Production and Quality Control. Moving first into Sales in 1978 and then Sales Management in 1982, he became the Company’s President in 1987, succeeding his father, one of the founders of Bay Microfilm, Inc (BMI).

Bill has worked with the local chapters of AIIM and ARMA leading classes in specialized records management and document handling technique. Bill has successfully navigated several major technology shifts as the document management industry has progressed from microfilm into a high-performance digital world. During his tenure as President, BMI has acquired three document imaging companies, opened a branch in Sacramento and launched a national product line. Born in 1950, Bill lives with his wife of 30 years, April, in Los Altos Hills. He has two children, Hillary and Will, who both work at BMI.


Brad joined BMI Imaging Systems in 1988, leaving a financial analyst position at Dun and Bradstreet.

Currently with Major Accounts responsibilities including many State of California installations and a National Product Distribution Channel, Brad is known for his technical and business process acumen.
