Eric’s lifelong dream was to be a big-shot stock broker—at least at first. After earning a degree in economics and math, he discovered his love of programming. As he took on more leadership opportunities at various startups, Eric transitioned to product management, since he wanted to ensure his teams were building a product customers would use. Then Eric discovered CarMax, which he loves for its startup culture at a Fortune 500 scale.
Eric gets right to business by 8 AM each day. His schedule often involves meetings with senior stakeholders to bring CarMax’s corporate strategy to life. Once he’s got the plans, he sets them into action by shadowing teams and helping achieve milestones. In general, Eric proves that innovation and rapid growth isn’t just for startups—it can happen within a Fortune 500 company.
