Steve J. Vertun: Segue Managing Director of Corporate Development

Posted by bstocks on 03/06/2009

Steve Vertun, Segue's Managing Director for Corporate Development

Starting in 1983, Steve acted as Vice President Corporate Development for the industry’s largest legacy computer electronics Business/Product line acquisition Management Company. Over the next eleven years, Steve was directly involved in more than thirty corporate entity, divisional or product line buyouts, spanning a diversity of computer and consumer electronics products from some of the largest OEM’s in the marketplace (IBM, Xerox, Siemens, HP, Memorex, Western Digital, Kennedy Tape, Shugart, Control Data).  Developing, implementing and executing unique strategies to help resolve the many common and unique issues facing OEM’s regarding the management of their legacy manufacturing and product lines, reverse logistics supply chain and excess/ obsolete inventory issues resulted in a core competency education.  In 1994, as market demand shifted towards at-risk inventory (excess, obsolete, customer returns) focus, Steve and his business partner Lyle spun out the Segue Group division and formalized Segue Corporation.

As Managing Director of Segue, Steve has dedicated the last 25 years of his career establishing and delivering the most comprehensive solutions available to meet the  ever evolving needs of OEM’s regarding their reverse logistics and at-risk inventory management challenges.  Focus is on activities essential to maximizing asset recoveries; mitigating sales channel conflict, reducing OEM costs and protecting corporate brand name and integrity. Segue Corporation continues to provide these services for many of the industries leading manufacturers including Microsoft, Quantum, Targus, Spectrum Brands, Imation and several other well know and respected market leaders.

 

Steve holds a B.S. in Business Management from Montclair University, N.J. and an MBA in Street Smarts acquired from 25 years working in the Corporate Real World.
