Chief Product Officer
Eric Sanchez serves as Chief Product Officer of GrowPath.
Eric has a well-earned reputation for logistics, efficiency and technical savvy, born from his diverse background and from his over seventeen years as an executive in what has become the largest plaintiffs’ practice in North Carolina.
This experience has led him to his business philosophy: reduce business information as much as possible to objective analytics, enabling management to direct and manage complex systems within a professional services environment.
Eric successfully put theory into practice with his design and implementation of several major administrative programs which proved to be instrumental in managing one of the largest civil-rights cases in United States history: In re Black Farmers Discrimination Litigation, Case No. 08-mc-0511 (PLF) (D.D.C.).
Eric designed and has overseen the development of several software platforms furthering the use of technology and data management which are in use by multiple law firms. As a named inventor on patents and patents pending, Eric continues to innovate in the areas of cybersecurity and data management and use, among others.
Eric received his MA in Public Policy and Administration from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois and received a BS in Criminal Justice Administration from California State University, East Bay.
Eric served in the United States Marine Corps as a non-commissioned officer, graduating as one of the top recruits in his platoon. He is also a graduate of multiple electronics schools. Eric served a total of eight years of both action and reserve service, and was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps.
