OwnerIQ

“Thanks to my team’s prior success with founding Bitpipe, I could be more discerning with whom we chose to work. Eric was our clear choice to work with when we founded OwnerIQ because he became truly part of the team even before the company was financed. Rather than directing, as a member of our team he collaborated in wrestling with the problems and challenges of starting and growing a company. The partnership with Eric helped us make better decisions.”

Performix

“Eric led the last outside round in Performix and was an invaluable support for me as CEO and the Company on the path to exit. In fact, during the sale process I had to step out of the business for personal reasons and Eric stepped in, ensuring the process did not stall. He gets what companies need help with, is utterly professional, is focused on what’s important, is always straight, and added tremendous value to me, my management team, and the Company. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.”
