Erix balances an exceptional technical mind with the compassion to nurture and develop those who work for him. He
came on board midstream in a large system rewrite project and, with minimal transition, he owned the project and built
relationships with employees and vendors that ensured success. Technical professionals recognize and value Erix' ability to
manage with respect and his sincerity brings difficult situations to conclusion leaving everyone feeling a winner. If you are
a visionary, then Erix' style complements perfectly as he is the bridge to connect with highly technical teams leading them
to outperform.

Sean Duane Business Analyst at HSN
I had the privilege of working for Erix for 4 years (2011-2015) on HSN's Telecom Applications Development team. Erix is a
dedicated, selfless leader that cares deeply about his people. He is also a visionary IT Professional with a proven trackrecord of delivering results. While at HSN, Erix led the team that replaced the company's mission-critical IVR system - one
that services an average of 100,000 customer calls per day. Despite encountering repeated challenges, Erix kept his team
focused over the multi-year project, culminating in the delivery of a highly complex IVR built on Convergys' Intervoice
Voice Portal (IVP). The enormity of this achievement cannot be overstated - and it would not have happened had Erix not
been at the helm. Erix brought out the best in every team member, maximizing their strengths. For me personally, he
helped me grow to new heights and see things in new ways. I am without a doubt, a stronger professional because of his
influence - but I'm an even better human being because of his example.
