Gary Bothmann, VP, Disposition Solutions, Echo Environmental, LLC As a VP with Echo Environment (www.echoenv.com), Gary brings more than three decades of forward and reverse supply chain knowledge to build comprehensive solutions for material disposition, deployment, ITAD, asset value maximization, data sanitization, SD-WAN managed services and of course, reverse logistics. Gary’s unique experience and understanding of the circular life cycle has enabled him to utilize a consultative approach to build real world solutions for his clients that create a positive ROI. It’s true, the industry has changed significantly, but the value of returned, end-of-life, BER products and components has always been there. We have created a whole industry to provide recycling, liquidation and remarketing of these products. But there is still opportunity for improvement by expanding into more international markets, control of the downstream for recycling commodities and use in re-manufacturing. There are still many challenges and he assists Echo Environmental and now RLA to be an industry and legislative leader.
