Trustee Eric Morgan

Eric is an experienced chief executive who has led and built software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) businesses ranging from $5 million to $150 million. Several of these companies were acquired by public companies. He brings a unique perspective to entrepreneurs/founders, investors, and other business leaders: One size does not fit all, and each company must adopt an approach that is best for their desired outcomes and stage. His areas of expertise include software, cloud computing, venture/private equity, fundraising, building growth strategies, mergers and acquisitions, all aspects of software go-to-market, and organizational development including virtual organizational management. Eric is an investor and board member of several start-up SaaS companies. Eric earned his BA in Business Administration from New England College.

NEC’s Board of Trustees serves as the governing body of the College. Its primary function is to direct and control NEC’s executive and management operations by devising and implementing the appropriate general, educational, and financial policies that enable NEC to fulfill its mission and uphold its academic principles. This includes, among other things:

  • Determining degree programs offered
  • Determining NEC’s organizational structure in terms of academic divisions, schools, and offices
  • Establishing tuition and fee policies
  • Approving all earned and honorary degrees granted
  • Approving and overseeing NEC’s operations budget and investments
  • Evaluating the performance of NEC’s Trustees and senior leadership
  • Establishing and overseeing plans for the development and maintenance of NEC’s campus

The Board of Trustees works closely with NEC’s president and meets at least three times a year in Henniker.
