Eric has a growing list of accolades that all reflect the growth and success of his company, Vacasa. He’s a humble guy whose fast-growth company all started with his family’s 1800s cabin. That experience combined with two great first hires, hard work, diligence, and an amazing team have all resulted in the 2nd largest vacation rental management company in the United States.
In this interview you’ll hear Eric address some unique topics like:
- When he first realized he was actually a CEO
- How focusing on hiring friends and referrals has fueled Vacasa’s growth
- How he handled leaping from individual contributor at Capital One to being the CEO of an over 1,000 person company
