Eric has served as a member of the Red Clover team for over 5 years, taking on progressive responsibility, moving quickly through the ranks from Consultant to Senior Consultant, now serving as Director of Operations. As Director of Operations, Eric uses his 15+ years of people management experience to guide the team in effectively leveraging their communication styles and unique skill sets to best serve their assigned clients. Eric’s natural process orientation and preference for data-driven decision making is a natural fit in helping our clients scale their businesses while also driving the growth of Red Clover.

Before pivoting into HR consulting, Eric served as a University housing professional along the East Coast since 2005. He flexed his change management muscles throughout his career, often taking on projects that required critical thinking to turn failure into success. His ability to approach problems from all angles is how he helps CEOs, COOs and founders scale their businesses and overcome the obstacles that come with rapid scale. During his tenure in higher education, Eric supervised teams of all sizes and skill levels, which has equipped him with the ability to serve as an empathetic but decisive people leader. He holds teams accountable while also motivating and encouraging them in their ongoing professional growth.

Eric achieved his SHRM-SCP designation in 2019 and is certified through TTI Success Insights to complete DISC, Driving Forces, and EQ debriefs for the firm’s internal team and for Red Clover’s small business clients.

When Eric isn’t serving as the senior HR advisor to CEOs, COOs and founders, he can be found with his nose in a book or training for his next Disney race.
