Eric, 29, is originally from Northeast Wisconsin and currently resides in Marquette. In 2007, he graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a Finance Major and has been in the banking industry ever since. After living in La Crosse for several years, he and his wife Michelle moved to Madison, Wisconsin, where they lived for approximately two years. While in Madison, Eric accepted a position with Settlers bank, a start-up commercial bank, where he began in the loan documentation department. After some time in this department, he was subsequently promoted to the bank’s Credit Analyst position. When Eric’s wife accepted a position at Marquette General Hospital in 2011, his bank decided to allow him to telecommute from his home in Marquette, in order to retain him as an employee. This arrangement has worked well for both parties and Eric continues to telecommute each day as the bank’s Senior Credit Analyst.
Since moving to the area, Eric has begun cross county skiing, grouse hunting and watching the Red Wings and NMU hockey teams. In addition to belonging to 40 Below, he has also recently joined Accelerate UP, which focuses on helping start-up businesses in the area, as well current businesses looking to expand.
40 Below has allowed Eric to meet new personal and professional connections and looks forward to getting more involved with the organization over time.
