Echo Names New President

Tim Dorsey, an 18-year company veteran, replaces the retiring Dan Obringer.

Effective January 1, 2014, Tim Dorsey becomes the second American president of outdoor power equipment manufacturer Echo Incorporated, a subsidiary of Yamabiko Corporation of Japan. He replaces retiring president Dan Obringer.

Dorsey has worked for Echo for 18 years in a variety of positions including the last seven as vice president of systems and logistics. As a member of the executive team, Dorsey played a key role in the company’s growth and profitability over the years.

“The transition in leadership to Tim will be seamless,” says Obringer. “We have a great executive team and Tim has been a key member for the last seven years. Our business has grown tremendously and I expect this momentum to continue and Echo to grow and prosper under Tim’s leadership.”

Obringer, who has served as president for the past five years, will remain in an advisory capacity for the next year.

Dorsey and his family live in Cary, IL. He is a graduate of DePaul University.
