“I am proud of the way our organization quickly adapted to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and is navigating the environment ever since,” said William L. Meaney , president and CEO of Iron Mountain. “A crisis such as COVID tests us on many levels and we are pleased that from the beginning of this crisis, we have taken decisive, yet thoughtful, action to help keep our Mountaineers, their families, and our customers safe all whilst meeting our customers’ business needs around the world. At the same time, we took purposeful steps to further strengthen our financial position and liquidity, enhancing our flexibility to continue to invest in our business for the long term, and reward our shareholders with a sustainable dividend. On a less positive front, we found through reflection after the murder of George Floyd , that whilst we have made progress living up to our stated value around building diverse and inclusive teams, we have fallen well short of our intended – and necessary – objectives. For Iron Mountain, Diversity and Inclusion is about social justice as well as a business imperative. It is only by achieving a truly diverse and inclusive workplace, that we will be assured to have both the best talent as well as the level of creativity to continue to serve our customers in the best possible ways. We have recommitted ourselves to this value and are making the necessary changes to make better and faster progress in this area.”.
