Who We Are
Bob Tassone is the Co-Founder and CEO of TAGeX Brands, a global firm that creates marketplaces for surplus equipment, inventory and other assets. With a sound foundation in the food industry, TAGeX has expanded into other sectors and focuses on generating return on assets and reducing waste. TAGeX Brands connects buyers and sellers in a common marketplace. The industries served include retailers, restaurants, grocery chains, manufacturers, distributors and convenience stores.
For over thirty years, TAGeX and its affiliated firms have helped clients deal with the challenges of growth, transition and decline. Serving up to 35,000 locations per year, TAGeX has been a pioneer in the outsourcing of equipment and facility transitions. These include Facility Remodels, Closures, and Asset Disposition. The firm boasts a multitude of sales channels which serve clients and customers across the nation.
After years of growth and the need for a larger facility, TAGeX Brands relocated its operations from the Washington D.C. area to the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. This move was prompted by the development of a 1,000 acre portion of the former Seneca Army depot.
Bob began his career in the travel and tourism industry and has partnered with Neal Sherman, co-founder, for over 25 years.
Bob is a long-time member of Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO), a global business network of 12,000+ leading entrepreneurs in 170 chapters and 53 countries.
