Eric studied business management at the University of Phoenix and began his career in the industrial supply chain industry. He began to focus on lighting and energy efficiency, and over time, his career revolved around the subject. Eric was introduced to Philips Lighting three years ago, and has been with the company ever since.
Since Eric operates remotely, his duties vary depending on where he’ll be working. If he’s outside of the home office, he’ll reach out to customers, touch base with colleagues, and begin work on projects wherever needed. If Eric is traveling, he usually goes city to city meeting with customers and finding solutions to their needs.
“One word to describe my relationship with my manager is synergy. We work very well together, where I have plenty of autonomy, but he’s also there to keep me in check in case I need some direction and guidance.”
“My advice to someone coming in to interview at Philips Lighting is to be prepared to work hard, fast, and be ready for anything. We work in a fast-paced environment, so be willing to work hard and you’ll have a great career here.”
