Redman began his career with General Power Equipment, a division of True Value Hardware. He then joined Simplicity Manufacturing for nine years before a tenure at Briggs & Stratton. Redman served as president of the company’s home power products business for four years and president of the turf and consumer products business from 2010 to 2022.

“Echo is a well-respected company with a reputation of offering great products and customer care, and I’m honored to lead a company rich in innovation and legacy,” said Redman. “As our industry continues to change with new technologies, I look forward to working with this exceptional team of talented and passionate Echo employees to bring new products and services to the green industry,”

Harold succeeds Tim Dorsey, who will retire after 27 years in various roles at Echo. Dorsey most recently served as president for the last nine years. He will continue to serve as a Global Operating Officer of Yamabiko — Echo’s parent company — and a board member for Echo and Yamabiko Europe.

“While I’m excited to move to the next chapter, I also have a heavy heart as my time at Echo has been the most rewarding of my career, and I cannot express my gratitude enough,” said Dorsey. “However, it’s safe to say that Echo is in great hands with Harold, who is a driven, humble leader that demonstrates strong leadership.”
