Erik joined the Aquent team in November 2016 as Account Manager for the Nike account. Prior to Aquent, Erik was a black badge employee at Nike, where he was an Account Marketing Manager in the Golf category. His primary role at Nike was to quarterback the marketing relationship with four national retail partners: Dick's Sporting Goods, PGA Superstore, Golfsmith and Worldwide Golf. Erik's career in marketing and communications extends back 10 years and includes two years on the leadership team at Bandon Dunes and seven years at Golf Channel HQ in Orlando, Fla. It's no surprise that Erik has a passion for golf, but he also enjoys traveling (he's been to 47 states), running and Oregon Ducks football.
