WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rob Lederer, former executive vice president of the National Pest Management Association, was recently appointed as the first-ever executive director of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC). The EICC is a coalition of the world’s leading electronics companies working together to improve efficiency and social, ethical, and environmental responsibility in the global supply chain.

According to an EICC press release, in this position, Lederer will provide strategic leadership, have oversight to the EICC’s initiatives, and manage the operations.

“Rob is a talented leader with deep experience and wisdom in leading associations such as the EICC,” said EICC Chairman Tim Mohin. “He will be a tremendous executive director to help the EICC fulfill its potential going forward.”

In the press release, Lederer was quoted as saying he was “honored to be the EICC’s first executive director. The EICC is at an exciting inflection point in its history. I look forward to leading the organization with enthusiasm and dedication in advancing the EICC’s vision of a responsible electronics supply chain.”

Lederer resigned as executive vice president of the National Pest Management Association in October, after having served in that position the last 17 years (see related story). Additionally, he was mayor of Fairfax, Va., for 10 years.
