Integral Solutions Group Names Senior Vice President, Accounting Manager
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Spartanburg, SC (April 15, 2015) – Integral Solutions Group is pleased to announce the promotion of Joe Strayer to the newly created position of Senior Vice President and General Manager. In his new capacity, Strayer will oversee the company’s general management and day-to-day operations.
“Joe has truly worked his way up through the ranks,” said Russ Weber, president of Integral Solutions Group. “He was the company’s first network integrator and knows every facet of our operation.”
Strayer joined the J M Smith Corporation in 1996 when he worked at the QS/1 division as a hardware technician. He was a key player when the corporation formed QS/1 Network Solutions Group. In 2005, the company merged with Integral Technical Services and became what is known today as Integral Solutions Group.
“Joe’s hard work through the years was rewarded in 2009 when he was promoted to vice president,” Weber added. “He has been instrumental in helping grow Integral’s operations beyond networking by spearheading the construction and development of our tier four Data Center.”
Strayer’s promotion was effective March 1, 2015. In the community, he serves on the Facilities Committee at the Chapman Cultural Center and the Technology Subcommittee at Converse College.
Kim Anderson has been promoted to Accounting Manager. Anderson will retain her role as Purchasing Manager, but will expand her duties to include overseeing the company’s accounting.
“Kim has played an instrumental role in the company’s fiscal responsibility,” Weber said. “We are lucky to have someone with Kim’s experience inside our organization.”
Anderson joined the J M Smith Corporation in 1997 as an Upgrade Sales Specialist at QS/1. She transferred to Integral Solutions Group in 2006. Anderson graduated from USC Upstate with a BS degree in Finance and Economics.
