Eric leads the Client Analytics department, which operates and continues to improve and expand Performance Trust’s financial decision-framing methodology for use by depository institutions; he also manages Enterprise Shape Management (ESM), Performance Trust’s Asset-Liability Management and Balance-Sheet Strategy service.
