Cascade Asset Management 25th Anniversary logoMADISON, WI – April 18, 2024 – Cascade Asset Management (Cascade), a nationally recognized leader in secure and environmentally responsible retirement services for information technology equipment, proudly announces its 25th-anniversary milestone. The company provides top-tier IT asset disposition (ITAD) solutions for businesses and institutions across the United States.

Cascade has grown significantly since co-founders Neil and Jessica Peters-Michaud began their entrepreneurial journey on April 20, 1999. Using a modest red pick-up truck purchased for just $1,000, the couple collected retired electronics from Madison-area businesses and initially transported them to the basement of their home for disassembly and recycling. A quarter century later, the ITAD firm operates facilities in three states, employs 111 people, and has processed over 113 million pounds of electronics for reuse and recycling. While much has changed, the company’s purpose remains the same: Cascade electronics to their next best use in an ethical, secure, and transparent manner.

Cascade has received numerous accolades over the years including being ranked among the Top 25 Best Small Companies to Work For, becoming a recognized provider in the Gartner® Market Guide for ITAD, attaining Number #2 ITAD Provider by Compliance Standards, and consistently earning a customer satisfaction ranking over 98%.

“Reaching our 25th anniversary is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, as well as the trust and support of our clients,” said Neil Peters-Michaud, co-founder and CEO. “We remain committed to delivering exceptional service and innovative solutions as we continue to lead the way in ITAD services for the next quarter-century.”

Cascade invites clients, employees, partners, and the community to commemorate this milestone on April 25, 2024, from 1:00-7:00 pm. The company is hosting an Open House at its corporate office on Manufacturers Drive in Madison, Wisconsin. The schedule of events includes behind-the-scenes tours of what it takes to refurbish and recycle electronic devices, along with displays, activities, games, and giveaways. Attendees are encouraged to bring their retired household electronics for recycling. RSVP to the free event at
