Bronx resident Mike Gupta, an engineering supervisor in Con Edison’s Gas Engineering department, has won the company’s highest honor, the Living Our Values award.
The recognition is presented annually to company employees who exemplify the values of service, teamwork and excellence, and who demonstrate concern for the quality of life in their communities.
“Mike seeks and accepts responsibility and knows the value of teamwork. He’s the kind of person who is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get right to work,” said Edward Foppiano, Con Edison senior vice president of Gas Operations.
Gupta developed an interactive map that displays all the work of Gas Operations. When the map was released, it was immediately recognized as a great planning tool and became known as the “Gupta map.” Now departments outside of Gas Operations use it.
Gupta is also passionate about the environment and the Bronx, the community he calls home.
He volunteers with the Bronx River Alliance, a nonprofit that helps clean the river. He is also the co-founder of G.I.V.E, Getting Involved Virginia Avenue Efforts. This group brings young people and community members together to help clean the Parkchester neighborhood.
