Our Story

Cascade Asset Management was established in 1999 by the husband and wife team of Neil and Jessica Peters-Michaud. Prior to starting Cascade, Neil led the University of Wisconsin / State of Wisconsin surplus disposal program and was challenged with finding homes for hundreds of thousands of unwanted assets generated by these institutions. With no good options available at the time, the couple created Cascade and built a company to serve other institutions looking for a secure, responsible and value generating IT asset retirement solution. . . . read more
