Eric Wheeler

Director of Marketing & Sales Operations

Eric is a marketing strategist, content producer, and natural optimizer of processes and operations. Mentored early on by former marketing leaders of Apple, Hewlett Packard, Ogilvy & Mather and Publicis Worldwide, Eric had a strong network of creative minds to help guide his career from the start. After following traditional upward avenues through account management and production departments at B2C, B2B, and social impact marketing agencies, he tried out the “client-side” as Director of Marketing of an assessment-focused EdTech company, but felt himself being pulled back to mission-driven work and eventually landed at Friday.

Hailing from a South Dakotan town most known for being home to the World’s Largest Pheasant, Eric has come a long way–quite literally–from his midwest upbringing. He now lives in the Sierra Foothills of California alongside his partner Jordan and their German Shepherd Gucci.
