ERI’s John Shegerian Shares Insights at VerdeXchange on Protecting the Planet through Innovation and a Circular Economy

Business Wire: LOS ANGELES--Last week, John Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of ERI, the nation’s largest fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider, was featured as a speaker on two panels at the VerdeXchange annual conference at the Omni Hotel in Los Angeles.

First, Shegerian contributed to a panel discussion titled “Circular Economy Solutions to California's Waste Crisis” alongside Jean-Christophe Lambert of Lithion Recycling. The discussion was moderated by the Deputy Director of Los Angeles County Public Works, Coby Skye. During the presentation, Shegerian shared why e-waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the world today and how Circular Economy strategies are the only solution to the issue.

Later, Shegerian was featured as part of a special Luncheon Plenary event called “Game Changers: Meet the Innovators” in which he was joined on stage by Myrna Bittner, CEO of RunWithIt Synthetics; and Mark McGough, President & CEO of H2U. Moderated by Jim Kelly, the Director of S&C Electric, each panelist engaged with Kelly and the audience in a spirited discussion, sharing their stories and insights on providing solutions to the planet’s most challenging environmental issues.

“It was a great honor and privilege to be on stage with the innovators and thought leaders at VerdeXchange this year,” said Shegerian. “David Abel and his team at VerdeXchange produce vitally important impact events, providing decisionmakers, investors and policymakers with critical thought leadership and an opportunity for experts to share what they know and discuss vital best practices. Communication and education are vital if we are to problem-solve and work together to create solutions that protect our planet. We’re grateful to our long-time friend David and VerdeXchange for including such critical dialogue at this timely event.”
