Hi. I'm Eric Boggs.
I grew up in Dallas, NC - a very small town 20 miles west of Charlotte. Though my accent has faded over the years, I'm proud of my rural Southern roots.
I graduated from UNC Chapel Hill in 2002. I was the first in my family to go away for college, but not the first to earn a degree - that distinction belongs to my mother who finished a 4-year degree while I was in high school.
I married my high school sweetheart right after college - which is easily the best decision I've ever made. I'm very lucky to be married to Kelly Stowe. We had our first child - Thomas - in July 2011 and we're expecting #2 in Spring 2013.
My first job out of college was in tech support at UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School. I hated it. My second job was at Bronto Software - I joined up as the first employee and learned a lot about marketing software and start-ups.
I earned at 2nd degree from UNC in 2009 - an MBA from UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School. Kelly and I used my business school "vacation" to travel - Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic. I hope we get the chance to travel (and eat and drink) like that again one day.
I started what became Argyle Social shortly after graduating from Kenan-Flagler in Spring 2009. Argyle built an amazing team and an amazing product and we've had an awful lot of fun in the process. I'm very proud of what we've accomplished.
My latest venture is Catfoxtail. We're a consultancy that helps B2B SaaS and services companies acquire customers. We build sales and marketing process, develop marketing automation and reporting, and provide fractional executive services. Catfoxtail is named after my grandmother, Catherine Postell.
In my rapidly decreasing spare time, I enjoy (slowly) renovating our 1957 fixer-upper house with my growing assortment of power tools, sloppily playing my various guitars, and obsessing over my beloved North Carolina Tar Heels. The blue on this blog is the official Carolina Blue - #56A0D3.
