John Shegerian, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company, was officially named to City & State New York’s prestigious “Responsible 100” list.

At the Responsible 100 awards reception yesterday at Sony Hall, City & State shone a light on socially responsible leaders in New York. The annual awards ceremony honored an elite group of 100 New Yorkers who are setting new standards of excellence, dedication and leadership in improving their communities and making transformative change. This year, the organization selected 100 New Yorkers from 10 sectors who embody one or more of the core principles of corporate social responsibility: charity, diversity, environment and sustainability, equity, ethics, privacy, sourcing, transparency, volunteerism and community engagement.

“What a tremendous honor to be named alongside this list of stellar New York visionaries,” said Shegerian. “We’re proud of what we do at ERI – protecting people, the planet and privacy…and keeping millions of pounds of toxic e-waste out of landfills. Being recognized at this event is a powerful reminder that we’re doing the right thing and helps inspire us to continue with our commitment to do more. I am truly humbled.”
