After working for 2 years at a German radio broadcaster, Eric-Jan moved to Deutsche Telekom to focus on marketing and digital technologies as part of the products and innovation team. Between 2011 and 2015, he consulted for several companies and agencies in the area of strategic and creative marketing. As a self-employed consultant, Eric-Jan specialised in eye-tracking studies for product-design, including usability research.
Having studied Digital Innovation Management as part of a BA in Music Business in Mannheim and a Master Degree in Digital Pioneering (Friedrichshafen/Cambridge), the move into this field was a natural career progression.
Together with his former flatmate, David Wohde, Eric-Jan founded Acomodeo and has held the position of CEO since 2015, when the company was first established.
