Roger Gallo is President & CEO of EquipNet, Inc. He has overseen the company’s growth from a start-up to a leading international business that provides surplus equipment solutions to many top Fortune 500 companies.

During his tenure as CEO & President, Roger oversaw the transformation of Uniform Printing into three distinct businesses: 1. Uniform Information Services - an Internet based legal publishing company of regulatory databases that helped companies manage the complexity of regulatory information; 2. B2E Resource - a print and supply management company that utilized a dynamic web based catalog to help Fortune 1000 companies maximize efficiencies of their internal corporate purchasing needs, and; 3. Formcenter - a direct marketing business targeting specific software based vertical markets. He served as the lead person in raising both private equity and mezzanine financing and led several acquisitions to help accelerate growth and better position the businesses.
