Since 2004, Jan (Blittersdorf) Blomstrann has served as President and CEO of Renewable NRG Systems, manufacturer of measurement equipment and turbine optimization systems for the wind and solar energy industries. She joined the company in 1987 when the wind industry was in its infancy and helped build a global organization that now serves 159 countries around the world.

In 2002, Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility began honoring Vermont's outstanding practitioners of social responsibility in business in fond memory of late VBSR board member, Terry Ehrich.  Terry was genuinely concerned about the well-being of his employees, generous with his time as a friend and concerned citizen, and successful with his business, Hemmings Motor News .  He also started the First Day Foundation to encourage greater parental involvement in public education.
