Today we’d like to introduce you to Curtis Condon.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
In 2011, Two Rivers Recovery, LLC purchased the Asset Recovery portion of Prosys Information Systems business, a value add reseller (VAR) of IT hardware. The Two Rivers team was comprised of just 6 team members that originally worked together at Prosys. I’ve been working within ITAD and the IT hardware industry for over 13 glorious years. Our core technicians and I have been working together for 10+ years and in the first 3 years of Two Rivers existence we managed to successfully grow the business 100% every year. We currently employ 30 part-time and full-time team members and in 2014, Two Rivers expanded partnerships and our footprint through a merger with downstream R2 certified sister company Synergy Recycling.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
With every new opportunity comes its set of obstacles; we had difficulty with financing initially, due to the recession. I was 29, had no money and Two Rivers was just a start-up.
Also, recruiting talent was difficult; finding and retaining employees with experience and tenacity within IT Asset disposition can be tough. However, as we grew, we worked hard at maintaining the same relationships with employees from the start-up days and found our stride.
Two Rivers Recovery – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Two Rivers Recovery is an ITAD (IT Asset Disposition) Company that has clients from a wide variety of industries; including Healthcare, Financial Services, Telecommunications, Education and everything in between. We offer solutions to clients of all sizes; from small, entrepreneurial businesses to Enterprise sized companies of 500+. Our offerings encompass end-to-end solutions for IT Asset Management, Data Security & Destruction, Environmental Disposal, Reselling, Buybacks and Redeploy.
Two Rivers complies with all US DoD 5220.22-M data erasure regulations and is R2 certified. R2 certification is a standard that focuses on proper reuse or disposal of electronics equipment in the most environmentally appropriate manner possible.
Following these standards are absolutely necessary for proper handling of IT end-of-life.
There is a process and procedure to the destruction of old IT equipment and it can be daunting for Procurement professionals to handle in conjunction with their daily responsibilities. Two Rivers Recovery excels at putting our client’s needs first and foremost, helping to alleviate the stress and pressure many tend to feel when going through an IT hardware refresh, retirement or maintenance.
We are incredibly versatile because we know that our clients are not cookie cutter. We can customize a solution or we can follow a company’s strict guidelines. We are a well-oiled machine, we do this every day and we are the best at what we do. Our employees are a huge part of making this machine run properly and without their dedication and experience; Two Rivers would not be what it is today. As the President of Two Rivers, I’m proud of all our employees and working with them everyday is my favorite part of the job.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Development and growth of employees are key indicators in our corporate culture. As we continue to team up with passionate, experienced people, generate new streams of revenue and grow the business, our success is inevitable.
