Show 134 with Richard Reese of Iron Mountain Part 2

Richard Reese Richard Reese. Former President, CEO and Chairman of Iron Mountain

On last week’s show we learned the Richard Reese story. We discovered what he did before Iron Mountain, how he got to Iron Mountain and then the incredible success he experienced while at Iron Mountain as it’s President, CEO and Chairman.

In this, the second half of my interview with Richard, I ask him about his perspectives on the RIM industry, his thoughts on the current round of acquisitions and any predictions he might have about where the industry is headed in the future. I ask his advice on entering the industry and succeeding in it as an independent operator. We talk about the commoditization of the industry and a whole lot more.

This show should be required listening for anyone in the RIM industry.

We will also get you caught up on the latest industry news.

Enjoy the show.

Show Length: 41 minutes

    Best interview ever!

    No pressure Tom but you have set a pretty high bar with this one. Good Job!

      Wow.. thanks Kristjan. Much appreciated. I feel the pressure.

      It sure helps when we have guests like Richard (and you and Patti) to make great shows.

    Few people have the ability or opportunity to make a substantial contribution to an industry. Richard has, thankfully.
