Eric serves in a dual leadership position as President & CEO for ProStar Energy Solutions and Vice President of Corporate Partnership Sales & Marketing for the Dallas Cowboys.
He assumed his role at ProStar in April 2020. ProStar, also owned by the Jerry Jones Family, was formed with the opening of AT&T Stadium to solve the challenge of managing electrical energy spend. True to the Jones form, the company has evolved since its inception to be on the forefront of the dynamic needs of the energy industry and its clients. Today, ProStar is a comprehensive energy management company with a complete suite of energy efficiency solutions.
Prior to his role with ProStar, Eric spent three years as SVP of Global Partnerships for Legends Global Sales.

At Legends, Eric led the company’s sponsorship portfolio that included selling for properties such as the Las Vegas Raiders & Allegiant Stadium, Los Angeles Rams & Chargers SoFi Stadium & Development, the LAFC expansion Major League Soccer team, and the Toyota Music Factory in Irving, TX to name a few.
During his time at the Cowboys that began in 2007, Eric has held a series of roles. Initially, his focus was on new business suites sales for AT&T Stadium, and was later promoted to the Director of Sales, where he oversaw twelve senior sales representatives that set records in both seat licenses and suite sales. He now oversees the 30-person team that leads the NFL in sponsorship revenue. Under Eric’s direction, the Cowboys sponsorship team accomplished a highly successful sales campaign surrounding the team’s practice facility and mixed-use development, The Star, which has become an icon in the sports world.
