Mike Newman


- Returnity

Mike is considered one of the leading experts in the transformation of logistics platforms from single-use to circularity, reducing the mountains of plastics and corrugated cardboard entering our waste stream while saving millions in packaging expenses.

Over the last 20+ years Mike has worked at the intersection of supply chain and sustainability; he directed the Sierra Club’s political operations in 20 states and built e-waste programs which saved millions of used cell phones from landfills for companies such as Verizon, AT&T, Walmart, and Best Buy during his tenure as the Sales and Marketing Vice President for ReCellular. 

A serial entrepreneur, he has founded three companies and built and launched technology products that have been distributed to millions of consumers. He brings a unique range of leadership experience to the table, including being elected president of a labor union and working in Nairobi advising a non-profit making footwear made from used tires. He has a true passion for starting and growing companies and developing partnerships with companies like Wal-Mart, Target and Verizon.

Today, he serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Returnity Innovations, the pioneer in the elimination of single use shipping packaging that reduces packaging expenses and provides a financial return, improved user experience, reduction of workplace injuries and significant reductions in resource consumption.
