Eric Thomas | Marketing Manager at CRD Design Build

Meet Eric, CRD’s head of marketing. Eric loves CRD’s culture of innovation, constant improvement, and service. “I try to see everything we do at CRD through the eyes of our clients and potential clients,” he says. “I want everyone who interacts with us to be delighted with the experience.”

Eric’s interest in the construction industry grew out of building Seattle’s first zero-energy solar home. He became involved in the green building community, working for the Northwest Ecobuilding Guild. Prior to joining CRD, he was the membership manager for the Master Builders Association. He recently finished building a zero-energy vacation home in Winthrop.

People may be surprised to know that while working for the New York children’s publisher Scholastic, Eric wrote the ads for the Harry Potter books. He has also earned his U.S. Coast Guard captain’s license and has sailed across the Atlantic twice.
