“Eric is the perfect person to speak to the Fall 2015 graduating class as he has accomplished so much since receiving his B.S. from our university some 30 years ago,” said Marlene Turner, interim dean, Lucas College and Graduate School of Business at San Jose State University.  “Eric’s career path is a compelling and interesting story which now sees him at the helm of a publicly-traded, technology-leading company, and his other achievements are equally outstanding. In addition to his undeniably successful professional background, he was a nationally ranked golfer, works with the President of the U.S. on an advisory council, and has been involved with the mentoring of 100s of at-risk youths via the Vision of Success program. I believe our graduates will find him an engaging and motivational speaker, and they will appreciate his insights as they venture out in their own careers.”
