Eric Smith

Where do you currently work?
I currently work at KKR & Co. 

How long have you been on the Next Gen Steering Committee?
I have been on the committee since 2019. 

What made you interested in joining the Next Gen Steering Committee?
HFLS has a profound community impact, and at the same time is able to customize and personalize its approach for each borrower’s unique situation. This really resonated with me.   

Where did you go to college and what did you study?
University of Virginia, Civil Engineering.

What is one interesting/fun fact about yourself?
I’m fortunate to have both my siblings, Mason (26, Brooklyn) and Shelley (25, Queens), living in New York City with me (29, Manhattan). We have a strong family representation across the boroughs!
