Board of Trustees
Eric Henze is a VVS alumni, class of ’82, and currently works for Microsoft as an executive consultant to Chief Technology Officers, CIO’s, and medical research teams on enterprise-wide digital transformational improvements. Working with the largest payors and providers in the US healthcare industry, his current focus areas are in predictive analytics for end of life and reduction of readmission, IoT for hospitals, along with deep learning and artificial intelligence within nephrology and early detection of diabetic retinopathy.
Eric recently completed his 10th book under his publishing company Gone Beyond Guides. The book, Just Go Grand Canyon, offers up a rich description of everything to do within the Grand Canyon National Park along with side trips covering 25 neighboring parks and 10 cities. His catalog contains several perennial bestsellers, including A Complete Guide to the Grand Circle National Parks. Some of the proceeds are folded back into the national and state park systems.
Eric is passionate about helping VVS leverage technology without it being front and center, sharing that: “Technology is best when it just happens. It shouldn’t be a hurdle to overcome but instead intuitive.” Eric has a degree in Environmental Biology and Environmental Engineering, served in the Peace Corps in Ecuador, and lives in the Bay Area with his wife, two teenage boys, and an Australian Shepherd named Sedona.
