Co-founder and CEO.
The grandson of farmers, a lifelong greenthumb, and a passionate environmentalist, Eric has always aspired to build a company that directly improves our human relationship with the earth. Alongside Tim, he co-founded Tortuga AgTech with that mission in mind. Prior to Tortuga, Eric advised Fortune 500 corporations at McKinsey & Company, focusing on Agriculture and Energy. He has worked for small-scale organic apple farms and the world's largest agribusiness companies. He holds an MBA from Harvard Business School, and an MS Management Science & Engineering and BA Psychology from Stanford University. Eric grew up in Los Gatos, California, but loves Colorado for the skiing in the winter, the hiking, swimming, running, and cycling in the summer, and the hockey all year round.
