Eric Zimmerman

“After 25+ years in public safety, changing career paths and leading the charge for HR and IT at an event production company is a blast! I enjoy being the one that brings processes and infrastructure to such a creative team of people. It is beyond rewarding!”

Eric is the Chief Information Officer and Jack-Of-All-Trades for our team. Born in Ohio and raised in Plano, Texas, Eric started his first career in Public Safety (EMS, fire and law enforcement) 25+ years ago.  He is also a former US Navy Chief Corpsman, serving most of his career with the Marine Corps.  After playing an instrumental role in the Human Resources and IT arenas at his last agency, Eric brings a depth of knowledge and passion for developing leaders and a love for process and policy to The Event Lounge.

In addition to managing all that goes along with HR and IT, it is also common to see Eric lending a hand in the construction warehouse and on-site at events around the country. He is a firm believer that his effectiveness as a leader in the company is directly related to a thorough understanding of everything that event production entails and he isn’t opposed to rolling up his sleeves and assisting in the trenches when needed.

Eric’s shrewd leadership and his 360° approach to HR and IT, combined with his endless desire to understand the event industry, make him an invaluable contributor to The Event Lounge team. He is passionate, determined to do things correctly and always eager to learn more about how he and the company can be successful.
