It has been a little while since I last posted an interview, as I have been extremely busy. So this week we have an interesting guest joining me on the Podcast.
Cory Schneider is a co-founder and head of customer service of Gizmogul, one of the nation’s leading mobile device and electronic recycling companies. In his role at Gizmogul, Cory is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the recycling company and managing the corporate office. He currently resides in Boston and is always seeking new ideas to grow his business into a household name.
Alongside his two other brothers, Cory Schneider and his family started their business from scraps, literally—going door-to-door collecting and recycling dental scrap from medical offices. Not long after, they were recognized by Inc. 500 as one of the fastest growing private companies in America. After a great run, they started recognizing that their family business of turning trash from teeth into treasure became outdated so they figured out how to launch their company into the 21st century and stay true to the model their family business was built on.
They’ve recently upgraded their “scrapping” business and co-founded Gizmogul.com, an e-cycling company which safely and securely recycles your unwanted electronics and currently process over 1,300 lbs of cell phones every week and to date, have e-cycled one million cell phones, tablets, pda’s and personal computers while donating a large portion to charity.

Their formula to creating this company was following five steps to changing their business with the times http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nicole-glor/following-the-electronic-recycling_b_4774350.html and since their launch, Gizmogul.com has 10 full-time employees that work directly on site at the warehouse in Massachusetts. They also launched GizmogulBuilds; a campaign where every electronic recycled is donated to buildOn, an international charity which funds the construction of new schools globally and supports after school programs domestically.
I hope you enjoyed the interview and found what Cory said interesting. Drop a comment below and let me know what you thought to it.
