A New Frontier: The Emergence of ITAD in a World of Data and Environmental Challenges

Opening remarks about the ITAD Industry. In addition to his own personal journey about harnessing entrepreneurship, John will provide ITAD industry insights: past, present, future; discuss how the ITAD lifecycle has evolved and the direction companies should move to stay competitive; and review global challenges and the role ITAD should play in securing data, maximizing asset recovery value and protecting our environment.

10:00 am - 11:00 am

ITAD Trends and Challenges

MODERATOR:

  • Karen Fedder, Sr. Account Executive, Blancco

PANELISTS:

  • Brent Barry, Executive Director, Client Services, ITAD and Reverse Logistics, Ingram Micro

  • Brad Morley, Owner/Partner, TAMS

  • Brian Wahoff, Vice President / Chief Technology Officer, EPC, Inc.

The traditional ITAD is changing and the ITAD 2.0 model is emerging. But what does that really mean? Is there room for a traditional ITAD that just brings in product to recycle? Is the market growing, and if so in what areas? How do you maintain stickiness with your clients? What are you erasing today that you weren’t 5 years ago? Where are the opportunities in the marketplace? How do you maintain your core business while competing with service providers knocking on your client’s doors? These topics will be discussed with the people that know. The goal is to spark ideas and have the audience participate in expanding the dialogue.
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
