Eric was born and raised near Seattle and moved to Colorado in 2002. He married his wife Erikka shortly thereafter and started a family. They have two boys, Mason (12) and Isaac (10) and live in the mountains west of Denver. They love everything to do with the outdoors and spend their free time in the Rocky Mountains, shuttling their kids to baseball, and cheering for the Seahawks.
Eric began his career in sales after receiving a degree in marketing from Western Washington University. After 13 years in sales and management, he left the security of his career to start Revenue River Marketing in 2009.
In the early years, he leveraged his experience and relationships to build the agency's focus on delivering business development services. As time went on and the agency grew, he noticed a gap in their business model as fewer and fewer prospects were willing to engage with traditional outbound sales tactics.
Believing digital marketing was the future, he worked to transform their team and tactics, becoming a certified HubSpot agency in 2012. He's continued to lead the growth and expansion of the agency's capabilities, leveraging his unique skill sets around sales and marketing strategies. Now a Diamond Partner Agency, the results speak for themselves as his team has grown into one of the most capable digital marketing & sales agencies in the world.
“I am very thankful I work for Eric. He has taught me so much about business and work ethic through his devotion and dedication to this company and its employees. He has really made us all feel like a family here at Revenue River and I could not ask for anything more.” – Nicole Rende
“Eric is one of the hardest working and smartest people I’ve ever worked with or for in my career. He is an incredible leader who knows how to get the best out of anyone and everyone around him and while he would never admit it, is the absolute number one reason for Revenue River’s success today.” – Marc Herschberger
