Head of Talent Acquisition
Erich leads talent recruitment and human resources for 20Fathoms and also works with our member businesses to help them recruit the best talent for their growing teams. He helps fuel the tech ecosystem, enjoys helping startup founders and teams, and is always thrilled to connect talent with opportunity or make an introduction for someone new or returning to the area.
Erich is a 20+ year recruitment and HR veteran. He has a passion for building early-stage, mission-driven companies through effective talent acquisition and driving profitable growth while enabling business transformation. A Seattle-to-Michigan transplant, Erich previously built and led human resources and talent acquisition at three hyper-growth-stage startups through IPO and beyond, including Trupanion (NASDAQ: TRUP).
Outside of work, Erich continues involvement in the startup space via angel investing as an active member of Michigan Capital Network. He and his wife Kristin enjoy time with family and friends, mountaineering, mountain biking, playing pickleball, and exploring all of Michigan.
