Meet The Team
We’re a group of data geeks and customer-centric team players.
We’re proud to support customers from all over the world, as they transform their teams from data-obscured to data-obsessed. In the fast paced retail environment, our team is dedicated to always delivering the technological innovation you need to stay one step ahead.
Founder / Chief Executive Officer
Prior to founding Askuity, Eric was Co-Founder and President of a high-growth CPG company that sold innovative products to retailers across North America. It was through that experience that he realized the impact that retail analytics could have on his business, but was frustrated by the lack of good tools in the market. Seeing an opportunity to transform the relationship between suppliers and retailers with big data analytics technology, Eric (with Neal) decided to launch Askuity.
Prior to his time in CPG, Eric was VP, Business Development and a key member of the original executive team that built enterprise software maker Workbrain into a market leader from its founding through its IPO and beyond. Eric holds an MBA from INSEAD (With Distinction) and a law degree from the University of Toronto.
