ERI Co-Founder Kevin Dillon Shares Insights on the Industry’s Vital Signs at E-Scrap 2018


NEW ORLEANS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kevin Dillon, Co-Founder, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Sales
Officer of ERI,
the largest fully integrated electronics and IT asset disposition (ITAD)
provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company in the
United States, described the current state of the industry and how ERI
has managed to continue its steady growth at E-Scrap 2018 at the Hyatt
Regency in New Orleans yesterday.

Dillon was joined on the panel, titled “Assessing the Industry’s Vital
Signs” by fellow industry leaders, Tricia Conroy of Electronic
Manufacturers Recycling Management Co.; Corey Dehmey of Sustainable
Electronics Recycling International; and Bernie Lee of Institute of
Scrap Recycling Industries. The discussion was moderated by Dan Leif,
managing editor of E-Scrap News.

The panel discussion covered details of the direction the industry is
headed and how industry leaders have adapted to accommodate changes in
the electronic recycling space. It was an open discussion that featured
the experts weighing in on the overall health of the electronics
recovery business and the question: “Is the industry primed for growth
or should we expect significant challenges moving forward?”

“We’re grateful to have been asked by our friends at E-Scrap to
participate in this important conference and to take part in this timely
discussion,” said Dillon. “It’s key that we as an industry focus on the
various ways we can move forward as the manufacturing side continues to
evolve. And each step of the way, we must never lose sight of the
importance of environmental responsibility, innovation, and the proper
destruction of digital data.”

its 16th year, offered a bustling exhibit hall, tear-down demos, a
series of presentations, sessions and Q&As featuring leading industry
