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.

RIMproReport Show 03 – Chris Harrer Startup Story

Chris Harrer is a relative newcomer to the RIM industry – at least he was a couple of years ago when I did this interview.  In this interview he shares his start up story and the lessons he’s learned along the way.  Yes, I know it’s a couple of years old, but the lessons are just as valid today.

Chris is an incredibly bright business person.  So, definitely worth the listen either as a start-up or as an industry veteran.

Chris runs United Document Storage in Pico Rivera, CA, part of the larger LA metro area.

Hope you enjoy the interview.
