2013 is going to be a big year at EyeQuant, and with additions to the team, we thought the time was right to introduce ourselves a little better.
Next on the block: Eric Bye - Business Development Intern
Eric is the newest addition to the EyeQuant team, and we are thrilled to have him on board. Currently in his final year at the University of Victoria's Gustavson School of Business (Victoria, Canada), Eric took a few minutes out of his busy day working on sales and business development to answer some questions:
Where did you grow up, and what did you want to be when you grew up?
I grew up in the small town of Sidney, British Columbia. As a young kid I wanted to be a cop, but with my first job in retail I developed an interest in all aspects of business and decided to pursue that route instead.
Tell us a love story: How did you find EyeQuant, or how did EyeQuant find you?
I worked with Kurtis, VP of Client Services, at a not-for-profit consulting group in Victoria, Canada working with businesses-in-need. After Kurtis started working with EyeQuant, I followed the business and his work very closely and as soon as an opportunity to work here came up, I jumped on it.
What exactly do you do at EyeQuant? What is the most important part of your role here?
As a part of the business development team, I assist with all levels of the sales process: Lead acquisition, lead nurturing, closing sales, and research for strategic partnerships.
You are wearing a wizard’s hat and gazing into a crystal ball. So, what will we all be talking about in 2013?
2013 is the year of the user. All the available technologies are finally being used to create value for the user first. Increases in relevancy and useability are a win-win for all parties involved.
Zombies or Vampires, and why?
Zombies; Twilight ruined vampires for me forever.
