Why do you do what you do?
I have been blessed with having gained experience and insight working for some iconic brands early in my career. This lead to me launching a brand management agency where I worked with entrepreneurs, small businesses, professional athletes, artists and emerging brands to develop business growth objectives, brand positioning, operational plans and marketing strategies. I’m extremely passionate about small businesses and the role they play in driving our economy and communities.
Since his paper route and lawn mowing business at the age of 12, Eric has always loved the idea of being a business owner. After graduating the Community College of Vermont with an Associate of Arts Degree, he went on to pursue a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Vermont and took a position with a small but growing brand at the time, Burton Snowboards. Over the next 2 decades Eric would get to work with other brands and businesses of all sizes and gain insight into a variety of industries while running his own Brand Management and Event Marketing agency. For the last 8 years Eric has worked with small businesses across the country while living here in the Pacific Northwest.
