Effective Jan. 1, 2014, Tim Dorsey became the second American president of Echo Incorporated, a subsidiary of Yamabiko Corporation of Japan. He replaced retiring President Dan Obringer.

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

“The transition in leadership to Tim will be seamless,” said 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, Ill. He is a graduate of DePaul University.
