Community Dataroots was started with one goal in mind – Help nonprofits with their data so they can better fulfill their purpose. Company Owner, Eric Wilson, has over 20 years of experience managing and automating data processes to support front-end analytical tools in Tableau, Microsoft Access, Excel and PowerPoint. He’s a data enthusiast, a deep thinker, analytical and passionate about arming decision makers with information they need to better run their organizations.
He has over ten years experience serving as a volunteer board member on K-12 Education Foundations supporting both private and public school districts.
For the past two years, he’s worked closely with Information Technology professionals prioritizing work as Product Owner to rewrite an extensive database out of Oracle and into Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) cloud environment. He’s been fully trained to use the Agile software development methodology during this process. This has been an invaluable experience that will no doubt help him in serving the nonprofit community.
He holds a Bachelor of Science in Finance from Missouri State University and a Master of Arts in Marketing from Webster University. Outside of work, he’s actively involved with youth ministry at his church and enjoys being involved in sports, music and speech & debate with his children. He currently lives in America’s Heartland outside of Kansas City, Missouri with his high school sweetheart and his growing family of seven children.
One of his favorite quotes is from Robert Collier which says, “Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” This ideal is something he strives to live by as he works with each of his customers.
