The CEO Views has named ERI to its annual “10 Smartest Companies of 2019” list for 2019. ERI is the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company.

The CEO Views is a monthly online and print publication designed to provide news about entrepreneurs and breakthrough organizations in business and technology. Each summer, the publication produces a special volume dedicated to profiling its annual selection of ten companies that have demonstrated particular ingenuity, creativity, innovative thinking or breakthroughs in technology for the “10 Smartest Companies” list.

In ERI’s case, the selection was made due to the company’s disruptive technology, which is changing the face of electronic recycling and ITAD services today while providing solutions to environmental and data privacy problems caused by the ever-growing glut of e-waste.

“It’s an honor to be selected and featured among this prestigious lineup of innovation-focused success stories in a publication that provides such a valuable resource for those interested in learning about A.I., data protection, cyber security and other key sectors of the technology industry today,” said Shegerian. “Many thanks to The CEO Views for capturing our passion for innovation.
