Join Carl Brwon and Eric Thomas, CEO and Managing Partner, Vergys, LLC,  as they discuss management and operations as they cover the ubiquity of consumers and competitors, the instantaneous sharing of information, the ever decreasing barriers to entry, and the insatiable demand for innovation are just a few of the difficult decision factors for leaders.

But making tough decisions is the essence of strategy. Will this investment in this technology or project meet our stakeholder’s expectations? Should we expand our reach into this customer or geographic segment? Is our organization best aligned to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow?

Eric Thomas is originally from New York City, Eric began his career with 3M Company after receiving a degree in Chemical Engineering from Northwestern University. While working as internal consultant at 3M, Eric developed competencies in statistical process control and project management. He was soon given the opportunity to lead domestic and international process improvement projects in Detroit, Michigan and Johannesburg, South Africa. He later joined Deloitte Consulting where he managed engagements for multiple commercial clients across many industries including 3Com, Solo Cup Company, and Ross Stores. In 2000, Eric decided to pursue his MBA with a concentration in finance and strategy from the University of Michigan. During his studies, Eric briefly worked as an investment banker for Goldman Sachs and served on a special international assignment for Citibank advising executives in Bahrain, U.A.E, and Turkey. In 2002, Eric returned to consulting—first, rejoining Deloitte and later, working for a boutique consultancy in the DC area where he was promoted to Vice President with responsibility for the company’s $10 Million federal and commercial client service practice.
