Meet The Founder

“To respond to our rapidly changing world, the battle cry in business today is for innovation, sustainability, and transformation. In order for companies to transform themselves, they need to transform their leaders first.”

Eric was born and raised in New York City, where he was a taxi driver in the Big Apple early on in his acting career. Eric is the culmination of street edge beautifully crafted into a bold-hearted leader. He lives in Pasadena, California with his wife and daughter.

Eric is a masterful executive coach, trainer, and founder of ekcoSYSTEM. He is currently a senior trainer for Co-Active Training Institute (CTI), an organization widely recognized as the gold-standard in coach training and leadership development. Eric is known for living his BADASS Leadership concepts, where he coaches from the heart with compassion, intuition, and fearlessness.

Eric is a natural disruptor, trailblazer, and social justice advocate. This passion stems from lived experience from his grandfather, a Holocaust survivor, and seeing his father role-model equity, no matter the cost.

“I can confidently tell you that I consider ekcoSYSTEM as one of the 
best companies for culture building and leadership development.”
