Meet the new DGG team member Eric Zapalac
We’re pleased to announce that Eric Zapalac has joined the team at DGG. Eric supports us as Global Sales Executive for North America business. Eric brings to DGG over 20 years of industry experience in Sales/Business Development and a solid understanding of 3D graphics.
After his degree in engineering, Eric started his own business selling hardware to major PC OEMs like HP and Dell. 12 years later he switched from hardware to helping companies expend their software offerings. He began working mainly with European companies to develop their product portfolio into the US market. For example, Eric led the sales office for an HMI graphics company selling into the Automotive market enabling real-time graphics into automotive in-car applications.
As Eric continued in this industry, he worked with major technology companies such as Qualcomm and Microsoft. Along the way, Eric managed a team that enabled the development of new, revolutionary real-time graphics for production level vehicles such as the instrument cluster for the 2020 Ford Mustang. Eric brings to DGG a solid understanding of 3D graphics and how, from a sales/business development perspective, to help customers build and develop an advanced 3D graphics workflow that will enable valuable time and cost savings.
As a Sales representative the relationship with the customers has been always very important to Eric. “When I meet with a customer, I always want to understand how we can help them and how to solve their problem. But I am not short-term focused; I always think for the long-term and how we can work together to mutually benefit both the customer and DGG to make a great product and relationship for the future.”
Not just on the job but also in his private life, Eric cultivates long-term relationships. He does a lot of trips with his family and generally likes interfacing with people. Consequently, the pandemic hits him very hard because he hasn’t been able to travel or see his customers. He likes building things in his free time, whether building furniture or 3D printing, “It’s peaceful for me and I like making things with my hands that can benefit my family and friends!”
Welcome to the team, Eric!
