President and CEO
Robbie Siemon is a 3rd-generation owner whose family has been involved with the operation of the company since the late 1920’s. A true Florida native, Robbie was born and raised in West Palm Beach. After graduating from Florida State University, Robbie went to work for Halsey & Griffith, Inc. (HGi’s parent company) where he learned the most important business lesson from his Father and Grandfather – fostering personal employee relationships.
For years, Robbie watched as the business owners worked side by side with the employees, never asking any employee to perform a task they were not willing to do themselves. It is a business philosophy Robbie maintains to this day, and one that he attributes much of the company’s success and staying power to.
Investing heavily in technology and training for HGi Technologies staff is Robbie’s strategy for business longevity. He believes current threats to the copier industry – and to the economy as a whole – such as consolidation of businesses, can be best met with providing superior expertise and customer service. He says, “We have to be able to adapt to new products and services to thrive in the future. The key is training our employees, giving them the resources to succeed, utilizing technology to keep our overhead low, and the owners staying involved in the business on a daily basis.”

Director of Sales
Harry has been in the document industry since the mid 90’s. He originally focused on providing color print technology back in the days when a fast color printer reached the amazing speed of six pages per minute! Color print technology for the office was still a relatively new concept back then. Clients were looking for someone they could trust, who understood their challenges with image quality, deadlines and demands for outstanding support.
After several successful years, Harry pursued an opportunity to manage a team. The real value that Harry brings to his team and clients is his positive outlook. He consistently looks at what can be done to improve a situation, and looks forward to solving client concerns and challenges.
Harry came on board with HGi Technologies after thirteen successful years in the Washington DC market. He was looking for a company that had strong family and business values and was thrilled to team up with HGi Technologies. He and his family enjoy the Florida climate, nature trails and beaches.
