Eric Sanchez, CEO
Eric grew up working in a family run retail printing business. He understood the importance of deadlines and customer service to achieve customer loyalty.
Eric started his career in insurance over a decade ago working with a fortune 100 company providing financial planning services for high-net-worth Individuals. His passion to help more people and change lives with his services led him to the group insurance side of the industry. He began as an enroller and quickly moved through the ranks of some of the top ranked companies in the United States. In 2018 Eric created Employee Retention Benefits, Inc. to offer a “first to market” complete employee benefits solutions company, with all services available from a single source.
Eric’s vision and passion for providing an elite customer service experience has been key to ERB’s success and surrounding himself with the ‘right people in the right seats.’ His desire to serve the clients’ needs first has played an important role in ERB’s constant search for team members that will help to drive that culture.
In his spare time Eric loves spending time with his wife and 2 kids. He also volunteers on a board for a non-profit and teaches at Guerreros Athletic Foundation; one of the top Judo clubs in the nation.
