Sharp Business Systems of Texas will be managed by its current President, David Gu, who is a 25+ year veteran to the industry and brings vast knowledge and experience to Sharp. “We are pleased to join Sharp Business Systems and are excited about partnering with one of the best brands in the industry to continue our strong growth,” said Gu. “We share Sharp’s philosophy of outstanding customer service and the delivery of high-quality products and solutions. We look forward to a relationship that positions us with expanded resources and better programs to offer our customers.”
