About Me

Erick came to Plancorp in 2014 and helped centralize our trading operations before shifting his focus to technology. Originally from central Illinois, Erick is a computer engineer by trade, and brings a unique perspective and deeply technical skill set to Plancorp’s operations team.

Our teams rely on seamless integration between many software platforms, and Erick leads the technical side of implementing new systems, customizing them for our processes, solving problems, and supporting our teams.

Erick loves building improvements through the entire lifecycle of understanding our team’s needs, designing solutions that fit our systems and serve us long-term, working with developers to build the new pieces, solving technical challenges, making sure the details are right, training users, and ultimately seeing the new solutions make life easier for our team and our clients.

Even outside the office, Erick keeps a finger on the pulse of tech trends. When he’s not tinkering on a computer project, he enjoys drives in the Missouri countryside and following sports at the University of Illinois, his alma mater.
