Merchants Fleet is pleased to announce that Ted Lague, Director of ESG & Sustainability has been named to the 2023 class of “40 Under Forty” by the New Hampshire Union Leader.
Now in its 22nd year, this prestigious recognition celebrates young professionals who have made significant professional and personal contributions toward making New Hampshire a better place to live and work.
“Thanks to Ted’s commitment, ESG is now firmly at the heart of everything we do at Merchants,” said Amanda Rogers, VP of Marketing, ESG and Innovation at Merchants Fleet. “Ted’s passion for ‘doing well while doing good’ is contagious, and he’s been instrumental in leading efforts at Merchants to make a positive impact on our communities, our people, and our business. We are beyond fortunate to have someone so driven and innovative on our team.”
Lague joined Merchants in 2021, where he oversees the company’s ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) strategy and programs. His accomplishments include the creation of Merchants’ first-ever corporate ESG report, a comprehensive community giving program, and a corporate vendor diversity program designed to encourage the use of small, local businesses that are diversely owned, and operate within socially responsible business practices.
