While living in Latin America in the early 1990’s, I was drawn to a growing demand to connect businesses from all over the world to North America. I initially founded Trade Development Strategies Inc., to fill such a need.  

After successfully connecting countless companies through organized trade missions and joint ventures, I came across the world of used IT equipment and parts and was immediately intrigued. This is when TDS pivoted and embarked in the world of used and refurbished IT parts. 

Nearly thirty years later, TDS has become a worldwide leader in refurbished IT parts provision with offices in the United States, Canada and India.  I have been very fortunate to have been able to travel the world as we expanded our global reach and to have met incredible people along the way.

From those early days, the aftermarket IT industry has grown immensely and is an integral part of the Circular Economy. TDS is very proud to be a part of this great global community as we strive each day to a more sustainable future.
