Eric Anderson

Vice President, New York Office

Practice Area Leader
Innovation & Commercialization
Eric’s diverse portfolio runs the gamut from early-stage project visioning to in-depth financial modeling and transaction assistance, and from global real estate portfolio analysis to program development for highly-specialized spaces such as incubators, wet labs and conference centers.

As the leader of U3’s Innovation & Commercialization practice area, Exemplary projects Eric has led include the development of a strategic real estate framework for the University of Toronto; managing U3A’s long-standing on-call advisory role to Columbia University – including acquisition analysis, RFP management, and conducting studies on themes from conference space demand to university bookstores; assisting Deerfield Management with project planning for a New York City life science innovation hub; helping the University of Calgary develop a vision for a university innovation park, and begin executing on the first project; and multiple additional innovation and research commercialization projects that include project visioning, program development, financial modeling, employment analysis, and grant writing. Eric gets particular satisfaction out of the multi-faceted nature of U3A’s engagements, and the systems thinking involved in coordinating the multiple components, challenges, and opportunities that may be present within one project.

Prior to joining U3A, Eric was a Senior Project Manager at the New York City Economic Development Corporation, where he worked on a variety of development and planning initiatives across the five boroughs, comprising resiliency planning, site development, RFP management, and incubator program development, among other components.

Eric earned a BS in Accounting from the University of Massachusetts, magna cum laude, and a Master of City Planning from New York University.
