Eric Teodoro Franco
I’m passionate about people, brands and how those intersect to create magic partnerships and sustained badass business results. I like a little heavy metal. Reposado Tequila is my beverage of choice. I’m a forever futbolista and I love traveling abroad! YNWA
A brand first creative leader who has spent 30 years merging brand strategy with the needs of local sales forces. Making brands relevant is my jam. Personally I’m a midwest kid who fell in love with the Rocky Mountain life a long time ago but still believes the Bears are gonna win it all again real soon!
After studying art back east, I found my home in Colorado for the lifestyle, skiing, and beer scene. While I'm passionate about the design craft, I really love developing a brand with the people who live it and to see it come to life.
I've worn many hats - web designer, strategist, brand manager, sales, and retail store owner - and understand what it takes to bring a brand to life. I love the outdoor lifestyle, and my home of Colorado spoils me every day in that regard. My sport of choice is cyclocross (think road bike with knobby tires, ridden on dirt and in fields) and drinking a cold beer or Paloma after the ride.
