Bonar began his career working in sales and procurement for IBM in Europe. His job required him to work with businesses all over the European continent and the UK.

After leaving IBM, Bonar became director of Engineering for QMS. For 4 years he managed a team of about 100 engineers involved in hardware and software development.
Next Bonar took his prodigious skills and experience to the Rastek Corporation. There he was the vice president of sales and marketing. The position required him to take charge of the company’s sales of printing technology internationally. Bonar remained there for 4 years before leaving to become sales manager of Adaptec.

In 1995, a year after starting Bezier Systems, Bonar became vice president of sales and marketing for the printing company itec imaging technologies.
