Eric is the founder of New York-based Effective Coverage, a digital insurance firm. In 2000, a devastating apartment fire set in motion the journey that led his firm to be one of the earliest adopters of technology in the insurance industry. While working at Chubb during the catastrophes of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, Eric gained a more personal appreciation for the value of insurance.He left Chubb because he saw a market that needed technology built to consumers needs.What he built was an insurance agency that strikes a balance between an all-digital start-up and the local agency in your town. He has combined the accessibility of the internet with the expertise of long-time agents. Now, with over 50,000 policies sold and customers in 40 states, Eric focuses on the strategic vision of his firm and on sharing the lessons he’s learned with business leaders and entrepreneurs.
