Eric Hallerberg serves as Oracle Hospitality’s Vice President EMEA Sales. Based in London, Eric leads the sales and account management teams across the region, including both direct -and partner channels.
Eric has enjoyed a varied career across multiple sectors, but he has spent his last 17 years in and around travel technology across the globe. He started in Marketing and Data Analytics with Sabre in Texas and then relocated to Singapore in 2007, where he spent time in Finance and Corporate Development with Sabre’s JV Abacus, before moving to “where the action is”, as he puts it – customer-facing commercial roles. He has been in these roles ever since.
He led sales, account management, and technology teams in APAC while in Singapore and then across EMEA after moving to London in 2013. After leaving Sabre, he established and led the commercial function for a UK-based travel technology scale-up firm, before joining Oracle in April.
Eric has a passion for growth, building strong relationships internally and externally to collaboratively cultivate high-performing teams and drive the success of the customer as a trusted advisor. An enabling leader, his goal is to create the right environment for great people, and then get out of their way, so they can fulfil the critical role of advocate for the customer inside Oracle, and advocate for Oracle in the marketplace.
Before embarking on his technology career, Eric spent time in politics in Washington as well as in academics. He holds undergraduate degrees in History and Finance and a Ph.D. in Economics.
For the last 25 years, he has considered himself an aspiring rock guitarist (which in his own mind is likely to continue as aspirational for the next 25 years). He is a part-time golfer and cricketer, as well as tennis and softball player, but his most recent pursuit is trekking, spurred by a visit to Everest Base Camp in 2016. In his downtime, he enjoys exploring the wide range of experiences that London has to offer.
