Prior to joining DDRM, Eric worked in a broad range of positions in both tourism and hospitality. Eric was Assistant Operations Manager for Alaska Independent Coach Tours Transportation, a company serving several cruise lines including Oceania, Seven Seas, Crystal, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruise lines. Although Eric wore a lot of hats at Alaska Coach Tours, he spent several seasons working as the Operations Manager’s right hand man, working in a fast paced yet highly efficient environment, all while pleasing the elite clientele as well the shore excursion managers from each cruise line. Eric also traveled around South East Alaska helping operations managers acclimate to their new positions in their new divisions.
His hospitality experience includes working in both the hotel and restaurant industries. He’s been a restaurant manager for two different respected restaurants and worked at a prestigious 5-star resort hotel in Park City, Utah where he gained experience as housekeeping manager and front desk supervisor. Eric also has a broad knowledge of what Utah’s great parks have to offer with tourism sector experience through an internship with Visit Salt Lake. One of Eric’s great contributions to Sentierre will be his seamless connection between back house operations straight to the guest experience.
Eric holds a B.S. in Tourism Management from the University of Utah.
