Eric V. Roach (@veroach)
Eric started with a dream to transform personal finance and empower individuals to take control of their own financial lives. In 1994, he founded Lombard Brokerage, which pioneered online stock trading and invented many of the technologies used in banking, brokerage and insurance industries today.
In 1997 Eric sold Lombard to Morgan Stanley and was asked by CEO Phil Purcell to serve on their Management Committee at their world headquarters in New York, where he worked in marketing, e-commerce and internal acquisitions.
In early 2000, Eric was recruited by John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins (KPCB), and Ram Shriram of Sherpalo Ventures to be the CEO of Elance, a services marketplace on the web. At the end of 2001, Eric left Elance to form Roach Capital Partners.
