“We share a deep sense of responsibility toward those who keep us safe,” said David Meredith, CEO of Everbridge. “Everbridge proudly supports our military employees and their families in times of peace, crisis and war, and we actively look for opportunities to employ Guards, Reservists, and Veterans.  I am also proud of our managers and the ongoing support they provide to our employees who dedicate their time to serving our country.”

Two Everbridge leaders received the prestigious Patriot Award from the Department of Defense ESGR. The award is nominated by a currently serving service member for the support and latitude granted by their supervisor or manager.
