President, SBC Solutions Group
After earning a Business degree at Baldwin Wallace in 1989 I immediately started my professional career. First as an Assistant Trader on the NYSE and later I moved in to an Inventory Manager position at a nationally recognized printing company. My career had started off as I had hoped but my passion had always been to own my own business.
In 1992 the opportunity arrived to leave the corporate world and start a business with my mother and father. That business started out as Shredded Bedding Company and twenty-six years later it has evolved in to SBC Solutions Group. Review our journey on our History Page.
I always have to smile when I tell people that I managed to roll my job, career and hobby up in to one thing and I am extremely passionate about this business and what I do. I am fortunate to work with my family members and some of my closest friends on a daily basis. SBC is not finished growing and all of us at SBC strive to continuously improve each and every day. You will find that our sales and leadership team is made up of unique professionals with a wealth of experience to find solutions for you and your business. I have been doing this for over twenty-five years and I feel this is the best team I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
I must take time to thank my family. Without their support none of this would be possible. My wife and I cherish our time spent supporting our son competing nationally as a third degree black belt in Karate and our daughter on a travel soccer club. I am blessed to have their love and support.
Vice President, SBC Solutions Group

Vice President of Operations, Southeast Region
Randy oversees the operations of our Atlanta warehouse and processing facility and is charged with business development in the southeastern Unites States. He has expanded SBC’s service offerings recently, adding the capability to provide certified destruction, toll processing, warehousing with a focus on inventory control and complete waste stream management.
Randy began his career at Worthington Industries, where he held roles in sales and production supervision before being charged with heading up a green field plant startup in Nashville, TN. He followed that with a successful tenure at Cintas in service and plant management, ending as the General Manager for the Atlanta Metro area where he was responsible for plant and personnel management with a $20M sales base. In 2004 he joined his brothers at SBC Solutions Group, taking on the task of establishing our Atlanta facility. Since then, the plant’s processing capacity has grown an average of 10% each year.
Randy earned a BA in Business Management from Muskingum University. He and his wife, Mary, live in Kennesaw, GA, and they have two children, Morgan and Luke. Randy is a college football fanatic and follows several teams, but in the end it will always be “Go Buckeyes”. He also enjoys travel, baseball, riding his motorcycle, and exploring Atlanta with his family.
Doug Van Fossen
Director of Business Development
Since 2008, Doug has been responsible for the development and expansion of SBC Solutions Group’s business offerings and customer base. His 25+ years of experience in sales, recycling and heavy equipment provide him with diverse experience which he brings to the table when assessing our customers’ needs. He is a strong “think outside the box” analyst, and his successes include the development and ongoing support of comprehensive recovery plans for several major US companies (in automotive and resins industries among others), being instrumental in the design and installation of SBC’s grinding systems, and creating a program whereby local high school athletes could earn money for their sports programs.
Doug was originally in medical sales; however, he decided to strike out on his own and he established a successful specialty drywall company which serviced central Ohio drywall contractors. In that industry he also saw a need: drywall wasn’t being recycled. He helped fill that void, collaborating in the development of drywall recycling equipment which is still used in the market today.
Doug earned his B.A. from Bowling Green State University, where he was a member of the football team. He is a huge sports fan and enjoys home remodeling projects, working on classic cars, and fishing in Florida.
