Meet the AIS Team

For more than 40 years, Automated Imaging Systems has served customers in Central and Northeast Louisiana. The secret behind our continued success is simple: We’re just like the people we serve.

AIS was created and is staffed by people from this region. Many of us have families who’ve lived here for decades. This gives us a deep understanding of our client base, which allows us to meet their needs better. Scroll down to get to know some of the AIS team.

Earl Tarver—Founder and President

Earl Tarver founded AIS (originally known as A.B. Dick Products) in 1969. His original vision of a cutting-edge, service-based, customer-focused company informs our approach to business to this day.

Earl spent 10 years selling for the A.B. Dick Corporation before deciding to venture out on his own. He guided AIS through the process of adapting to the emerging digital technology markets, changing the company’s name in 1993 to better reflect his concept for it.

AIS has stayed true to Earl’s vision over the years. Today, we offer solutions that range from the smallest standalone copier to the largest, high-production, network color system. This has enabled us to succeed and grow over five decades.

As the current president of AIS, Earl will help ensure that we continue to provide innovative solutions to your printing and document management issues.

Jesse Fulmer—Vice President

As vice president of AIS, Jesse Fulmer helps our company stay at the forefront of the ever-changing business world of today.

A lifelong native of Northeast Louisiana, Jesse has roots in the Monroe/West Monroe and Ruston/Arcadia areas.

Always driven, Jesse works hard to provide AIS’s customers with the finest available technology solutions.
