CR Magazine's Responsible CEO's Ring the Bell at the NYSE

Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - 3:05pm

Each year since 2008, CR Magazine has awarded the prestigious Responsible CEO of the Year Award, presented to CEOs — from companies, NGOs, and governments — who, during the previous year, put themselves at personal and professional risk in order to deliver on corporate responsibility promises.

This annual award is unique among business honors because it recognizes how individual CEOs have aligned their organization’s interests with that of thousands of stakeholders to do well by doing good and acknowledges leadership in progress, since corporate responsibility represents a discipline that is ever to be improved upon.

In 2011, CR Magazine announced the addition of the Corporate Responsibility Lifetime Achievement Award to recognize an individual whose risk-taking, vision and pioneering spirit have led to significant achievement in the corporate responsibility field over the course of their career.

This year, we’ve added 3 new awards – Responsible Chief Financial Officers (CFO), Chief Human Resource Officers (CHRO) and Executives in the Public Sector.  All award winners are nominated by fellow members of the CR community and selected by an independent panel of judges composed of previous winners and other recognized leaders.

The Lifetime Achievement Award winner for 2012 was Stanley Bergman, CEO of Henry Schein.  The 2012 Responsible CEO of the Year Award Recipients were: 

  • Hikmet Ersek, CEO & President, Western Union Company
  • Bob Moritz, US Chairman and Senior Partner, PwC
  • Jeffrey Ettinger, Chairman, CEO & President, Hormel Foods
  • Gale Klappa , Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Wisconsin Energy

This year's Award recipients will be honored at CR Magazine's Responsible CEO of the Year Awards Dinner taking place at the Commit!Forum, Wednesday, October 9th in New York City.
