How Erik is building a better working world

“Even with all the benefits and breakthroughs technology creates, I believe you have to approach each person from the heart. If you can be empathetic, you can connect with someone, no matter their culture, gender, race, or where they call home. I want to use insights gained from my diverse experiences to bring well-rounded teams together to solve complex business problems.”
