Meet Honoree Eric Soto

Over the course of his career as Director of Bronx Regional and Community Affairs, Mr. Soto was passionate and dedicated about supporting Bronx nonprofits, including the Bronx River Alliance.

During Mr. Soto’s tenure at Con Edison, the Bronx River Alliance received consistent support from the company for its Volunteer Program, and in 2016 received a $250,000 capital investment in River House, a boathouse and environmental education center in Starlight Park.

“The Bronx Alliance has achieved so much in its mission to protect, improve and restore the Bronx River and Greenway as healthy resources for the communities through which they flow,” said Eric Soto. “Not too long ago, the river was full of garbage and cars and no one wanted to go near it! The transformation on the river over the past few decades is truly incredible.”


Mr. Soto spent much of his childhood and early education in the Bronx. He received a bachelor’s degree from Harvard University and a master’s degree from Columbia University. Mr. Soto worked at ConEdison from 1987 until his retirement in 2021.
