Look at their opinions!
I meet Eric when he was at Thakoon, and was planning and rolling out the complete IT landscape. Fresh ERP, eCommerce platform and mobile retail platform, all in 8 months - amazing job! For us as a startup, Thakoon was also our launch customer. Eric greatly helped us with his expertise and feedback to shape the product in the right way and deliver the product and the project in a timely manner. His input was extremely valuable and we wouldn’t be where we are today. I hope there is an opportunity to work again with him.
Ulrike Mueller CTO of NewStore, former Co-Founder & Chief Software Architect of Demandware
When first taking Thakoon Direct to Consumer, all new systems had to be put in place to support this new direction of the business. And as with most of these initiatives, time was not on our side! We had less than 6 months to get everything done, but under Eric's skilled guidance and leadership, Microsoft Dynamics AX was implemented in parallel with Salesforce Commerce Cloud and a in-store retail technology. This is not an easy feat, and it was an incredible amount of work and coordination to accomplish in a short amount of time. But it was accomplished and all systems launched without delay, which is truly a testament to Eric's abilities as a technology leader.
Ashkan Farhadieh VP Business Development- Digital Content, Commerce, & Enterprise Search
I was directly reported to Eric when I worked in Thakoon as the manager of back-office systems. Eric is a true leader who is very passionate about his profession and can always inspire the team and share his knowledge and experiences on new technologies and business trends. He was a great manager who was approachable and open to discuss new idea with the team. He would also provide his guidance and support to the team whenever necessary to ensure team were in the right direction, and also provided a great room of flexibility for his managers to manage tasks in their ways. It was a really pleasant and enjoyable experience to work in Eric's team. Thank you Eric!
Michelle Lee Senior Application and Project Manager
I had the opportunity to work with Eric during his time at Thakoon when the business was transitioning from wholesale to direct-to-consumer. I am fortunate enough in my role to deal with several executives across the world’s leading retail brands, both technical and non-technical alike. I can confidently say that I have rarely interacted with an executive that possesses the ability to so easily transition back and forth between brand and technical – a unique skillset demonstrated by Eric. More importantly, Eric delivered on mission critical deadlines while managing a tight schedule and numerous projects. Finally, Eric is a pleasure to be around and someone I was glad to burn the midnight oil with.
Tony DiPaolo Director of Sales, NewStore
Eric is a keen minded and capable CTO. As Moet Hennessy IT Director Asia Pacific I have worked in direct collaboration with Eric over the last 5 years.
Eric has always presented himself as a knowledgeable, dependable and insightful colleague that is ready to present, promote and defend ideas. He is willing to listen to others, understand their point of view and facilitate the progression of the best idea.
Being a technology enthusiast myself, I have enjoyed detailed conversations with Eric on current and future projects that required imaginative technical solutions, especially as the conversation inevitably are focused on the best possible business outcomes.
Gavin McCann VP IT Americas, Moet Hennessy
Eric acts and behaves as an entrepreneur in Louis Vuitton. Never ending innovation is his main target, to be able to bring value to the company an achievement.
He think fast and act without delay. If you are looking for somebody sharp to brainstorm or challenge an idea, Eric is the guy.
