Eric Eager, Founder and CEO

Eric Eager is a “recovering CPA” with a love for technology.  He is a serial entrepreneur with a heart for helping businesses.  He brings a wide breath of experiences in business, analytics, and life lessons from startup to exit.
Before co-founding 4impactadata, he helped lead and grow BizNet Software to over 50 employees with 25,000+ users in over 52 countries.  It received the Inc 5000 award for the fastest growing companies 3 years in a row before successfully being acquired by TA Associates.
When he isn’t working on 4impactdata, Eric enjoys spending time with his family and twin sons, poorly playing golf, good music, and sharing dumb dad jokes with all who
might listen.

Chris Hagans, Founder

Chris is our Chief Technology Officer
but is known less formally as the technical guy, the team leader who sets the pace internally for projects and provides solutions for client problems using technology. He loves understanding how and why things are occuring – an interest that is particularly useful for clients and team members alike.
His expertise is in his certifications, being an AWS Solutions Architect and holding a Big Data & Analytics Competency certification.
When he’s not in the office, Chris is probably enjoying time spent with his family, watching his children’s sporting events, outdoors hunting or fishing, or giving a friendly “Jeep wave” to other
Jeep-owning-passerbys.

Marty Carney, Founder and Chief Data Architect

When it comes to roles, Marty wears many different hats, but you can think of him as a business and strategy expert. He brings decades of experience to the table and has been working in the data technology industry since the 1990’s.
As a Co-Founder of 4impactadata, Marty uses his passion and knowledge towards helping customers gain access to the right questions about their data.
Outside of work, you can find Marty spending time with his family, studying and listening to Jazz, mastering his woodworking skills, or going on a hike.
