Regional Area Manager
A seasoned veteran of the commercial tenting industry, Eric Christensen has more than 25 years of experience within the industry. Eric began his career at Aztec in 2005 and immediately became a shining star. When Alex Kouzmanoff (Vice President of Aztec Tents) was asked about Eric he commented, “Eric brings so much to the table. His abilities and skill set extend far beyond his extensive knowledge of the industry and product lines. Eric’s commitment to exceptional customer service is what puts him at the top of the class.”
In 2007, Eric became Aztec’s Regional Account Manager for the Northeast, covering the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, as well as his home state, Wisconsin. Eric’s focus and drive is based in a deep belief in the importance of educating the consumer. He is motivated by building relationships with his clients and says, “The Aztec culture promotes and encourages relationship building. My own core values fall in line with this viewpoint. In my opinion, the relationship trumps the sale.”
Eric believes whole-heartedly in the Aztec philosophy. With his finger on his customers’ pulse, Eric knows the importance of a company that is agile and has the ability to act quickly and efficiently, exceeding his customers’ needs. While working his territory in the 2008 & 2009 season, he was approached by several customers about the possibility of building a sailcloth tent. Eric believed in the vision and approached Aztec’s management and posed the feasibility question. After extensive Research & Development the new Tidewater product line was introduced. Eric states, “Tidewater has been a tremendous success for our customers. It fills a significant void in their product mix. Furthermore, it speaks directly to Aztec’s commitment to our customers. They asked, we listened and above all, we delivered.”
A native of Silver Bay, Minnesota, Eric graduated from Concordia College with a degree in Marketing & Communications.
Eric is a passionate family man and met his wife Monica while living in Minnesota. They married in 2001, and have two beautiful girls- Cam and Kennedy. Monica owns and operates a chiropractic business in their hometown of Stoughton, Wisconsin. When Eric is not busy with his family or on the road with Aztec, he can be found either in the woods with his camara or hitting the water in search of his next great fishing adventure. A former college hockey standout and avid fly fisherman, Eric has a long list of fantastic stories and is willing to share his adventures with anyone who asks.
