Co-founder and CEO1
Eric is passionate about empowering people facing chronic health conditions and believes it should be easy for them to connect and learn from others sharing the same condition. Eric incubated MyHealthTeams with his co-founder, Mary Ray, while running the online review site Insider Pages, a local review site owned by IAC. Prior to that, at genetics startup Perlegen Sciences, Eric worked closely with patient communities in breast cancer, lupus, autism, Parkinson’s disease, and other chronic conditions to enable research on the genetic underpinnings of those diseases. It was there that Eric developed his passion for helping people facing chronic conditions. Today, Eric regularly speaks at health industry conferences on the importance of engaging patient communities in the research and development of new therapies, and making sure the voice of real patients is heard at all stages of the process. Earlier in his career Eric was a VP of Strategy at E*TRADE and a partner at Oliver Wyman / Mercer Management Consulting. Eric is a graduate of Stanford Business School and Harvard College. He lives in San Carlos, CA with his wife and two children, and is a hopeless Red Sox fan.
