Rick Lewis President and CEO

Rick has been a visionary in ITAD services (Information Technology Asset Disposition) for almost 30 years and is considered a thought-leader in the industry. He is credited with pioneering the concept of electronic data eradication services that could be provided onsite at a customer’s facility. This revolutionized data erasure and data destruction by making it accessible to small businesses through to large enterprise data centers with thousands of drives to erase.

Prior to Transpere, Rick co-founded Techway Services in 2004 with the idea that protecting client data with an end-to-end solution for retired IT assets would be the future of IT Asset Management. Rick worked closely with several national retail chains to develop their centralized approach to recycling and reverse logistics and went on to implement similar solutions across manufacturing, telecom, government and education sectors.

In an earlier venture, Rick established GEEP Texas to bring an electronic end of life solution to the USA. The service utilized electronic recycling machinery that shredded and separated the metals from all types of IT equipment that were no longer viable for reuse. Given his commitment to a greener planet, Rick ensured that the services were delivered to ISO 9001, ISO 18001, ISO 14001 and R2 standards.

During his career, Rick traveled extensively throughout the world, including Hong Kong, China and Latin America and has gained a thorough understanding of international trade and diverse business cultures. Some of Transpere’s largest enterprise customers trust Rick to guide them in matters related to international IT Asset Disposition and the myriad of cultural and regulatory complexities.
