-Director Product Management, AthenaHealth
"Eric is a wonderful UX leader. In addition to his obvious competencies, I'd like to highlight two traits that make Eric unique: 1) Perspective 2) Inspiration.
Perspective: Some of my favorite work moments over the past two years have come when working on a big problem with Eric. Eric is the person able to see the forest for the trees and guide the group to also gaining this perspective. He does this in a highly collaborative by asking the right questions at the right times. Everyone is better off for having Eric in the room when trying to make big product decisions.
Inspiration: I walked with Eric through the streets of San Francisco to our company party last year. During the course of the 10 minute walk, Eric was stopped 3 times by people that he had previously worked with. You could tell with each person how much they respect and are inspired by Eric. You can also tell that each day with his UX team at athena, many of whom followed Eric to the company, who will jump at the challenges that Eric puts forth. His calm, encouraging, thoughtful approach inspires loyalty across not only his team, but across our company. I know many product managers and engineers who would say the same.
I'd be happy to be a reference for Eric and expand on any of the above."
