our values

At ER2 our core values are at the center of everything we do. They not only
guide the way we do business, but the way we treat others in and out of the office.

A LIFE OF SERVANTHOOD

Team members that live a life of servanthood desire to put others before themselves. They consider how their decisions and actions will affect others and choose selflessness over selfishness. They actively seek ways to give of themselves
and set others up for success.

CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

Team members that constantly improve are self-motivated, diligent and curious. They don’t go through life accepting things or themselves as they are today, but constantly find ways to improve processes & themselves. They persistently seek new knowledge, different perspectives and increased self-awareness. In addition, they are eager to support others’ improvements.

ACTING IN HUMILITY

Team members that act in humility believe nothing is beneath them and every person has value and significance. They desire feedback, slow to justify, believe the best in others, and are encouraging in all situations. They share credit, emphasize team over self and define success collectively rather than individually.

RELENTLESSLY PERSUING EXCELLENCE

Team members that relentlessly pursue excellence always strive to achieve incredible results. They draw deep satisfaction from doing the right thing the right way, even if no one notices or acknowledges it. They seek to learn & master their skills, providing incredible value & care to those they serve.

STORIES

Chris Ko’s story

ceo & co-founder
My life, like many others, wasn’t easy growing up. From divorced parents to living in 13 different homes and never at the same school for more than 2 years, I just never felt accepted as I was. I tried to be what I thought everyone wanted me to be so I could feel loved.
When I was 16 my high school sweetheart and I ended up pregnant. We got married at 17 and I graduated from ASU with a degree in finance and 3 kids. I went directly into venture capital and private equity where I learned quickly how to grow a business and maximize a financial return.
10 years into my career, Rick asked me to partner with him to help build a company together. I felt God leading me to help build the dream he had placed in my heart, a safe place for people to feel welcomed and loved exactly the way they are.
From the bottom of my heart, I believe each person has been uniquely created with gifts and talents, but are unfinished masterpieces in need of encouragement, empowerment, and healing. My desire was to help remove the lies that each person has been told; that they aren’t good enough, they can’t achieve their dreams, they don’t fit in, they aren’t worthy of love and the list goes on and on.

Helping build ER2 has been one of my greatest honors, because I get to witness everyday the power of believing and encouraging the human spirit and what that does for all of us. We get the unimaginable blessing of seeing people for who they are and who they have been created to be and it is truly magnificent. My hope for anyone who engages with ER2 in any way is simply this, that they feel special and valuable because they ARE!

Rick Krug’s Story

Visionary & co-founder

I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin where my adventurous spirit was fueled at a young age. From running a paper route for five years during elementary school to owning my own vending machine at the age of 13, I developed a passion to create and reinvent early – so much so that it’s what still drives me to this day.

Through 17 years in the automotive field and then transitioning into the electronic recycling industry I learned the value of hardwork. I studied my mentors, learning what worked and what didn’t for our customers and the business. I saw the potential in the industry and pulled from my lifelong passion to innovate. Step by step, I began putting the foundational building blocks together of what has now become ER2. I partnered with Chris in 2011 and we shared a common vision of what ER2 could be and imagined a company founded on and operated through a strong set of Christian values.

Potential doesn’t stop at companies, or buildings, or markets; potential can be found anywhere and more specifically in people. ER2 has become a place that unleashes the potential of our clients, our community impact, and most importantly our team members.
