The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce 2022 Business Person of the Year is James Marvin Owen.
Owen is one of the owners of ACS. He is president emeritus and chairman of the ACS Board of Directors. Owen has worked for 39 years in service not only to the clients of ACS but also to its employees.
Owen said he has not earned this honor alone. He said this award is a reflection on all of ACS’s nearly 400 employees.
As he came to the podium to accept the award, Owen said, “Wow. Wow … I am humbled and honored by this. This is totally unexpected.”
In making the presentation, Amber Sellers, commercial relationship manager of Wells Fargo, said Owen’s first job was with the Computer Consulting Division of Arthur Anderson in Charlotte. Those four years would provide valuable experience as he made the move in 1983 to a new start-up – Computer Dimensions – in Florence.
