You will learn about the two leading certifications that will make it easy for you to identify what e-waste and ITAD companies you should work with to stay protected against improper disposal of your equipment.

About the Speaker

speaker smith brandonBrandon Smith is the Vice President of Sales at human-I-T. After graduating with his Bachelors in Marketing, Brandon began working on campaigns for Nike, Sony Playstation, and Major League Baseball. Having got a full dose of the "road life", he grew tired of the grind and decided to seek a higher purpose. He began as a volunteer at human-I-T, armed with a background in marketing, account management, and relationship building. As the first true "Salesperson" at the organization, he began building systems and cultivating relationships with businesses to give their e-waste a second life to help those in need. Today, Brandon manages a team responsible for taking in over 100 donations per month from businesses across the country. Under his leadership, human-I-T has more than doubled their donation intake and the resulting community impact every year since 2016.
