Co-Founder and VP Services
Eric was bit by the software bug, early in his career, while working on Finite Element Analysis and implementing algorithms to model material deformation at high temperature. Prior to founding DataKitchen, Eric was the VP of Cloud and Data Services at LeapFrogRx, where he built a high performing data services team that had quality and process improvement baked into its DNA. Before that, Eric was a lead developer and software architect at Premisys Corporation, acquired by J.D. Edwards, where he helped develop a Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) platform for manufacturers of highly customizable products in a variety of industries. Eric holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Penn State University. He is looking forward to bagging all the 4k New England peaks with his young son.
