Murry has violated his terms of employment by:
✓ Ignoring stakeholder’s request to divest from weapons of war
✓ Serving on the board of directors at top war profiteer Halliburton
✓ Profiting from weapons used in the killing of innocent civilians
✓ Receiving compensation of over $3.4 million from Halliburton
Gerber holds a position that allows him to fill his pockets with millions of dollars. For example, one company he directs and profits from (Halliburton) sees risks and threats to its profits in the climate commitments adopted by another company that Gerber leads and earns from (BlackRock).
BlackRock portrays itself as a caring company, yet its own board of directors has ties to war profiteering, human rights violations, and the fossil fuel industry -- this is unacceptable. If BlackRock wants to be a leader in the progressive financial sector, it must start by cleaning up its board of directors and business practices.
We are demanding accountability from BlackRock by advocating for Gerber’s resignation. Murray Gerber has got to go. Sign Gerber’s Pink Slip.
