SUPPORTING OUR EMPLOYEES IN TIMES OF NEED
The Richard Reese Employee Relief Fund supports Iron Mountain employees during times of tragedy. Its purpose is to help employees and their families recover and transition from events that are outside of their control, particularly those that affect their ability to pay for basic living expenses.
Originally, the Relief Fund provided support for Iron Mountain employees affected by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Wishing to support their fellow employees in time of need, Mountaineers from all over the world generously donated to a centralized fund. Today, this Fund continues to offer short- term financial assistance to any Mountaineer and his/her/their family impacted by a catastrophic event. The Fund continues to thrive today thanks to ongoing support from Mountaineers across the globe.
In 2014, the Mountaineer Employee Relief Fund was changed to the “Richard Reese Employee Relief Fund,” after Iron Mountain’s long time CEO, Richard Reese. Richard Reese served as CEO of Iron Mountain from December 1981 to June 2008, returning to the role in 2011-2012. During his tenure, Richard not only grew the company and its revenue, but he also demonstrated formidable loyalty and dedication to his employees. The Richard Reese Employee Relief Fund is a 501c3 organization.
