Eric is actively involved in the lives of his five children and can frequently be found cheering rather loudly from the sidelines at their soccer games, tennis matches, football games, and other sporting events.

He has since also become an expert in developing Cloud, android, and iOS applications. At SocialClimb, he leads a multi-disciplinary team spanning dev, QA, dev ops, and product management.

Jared and his wife have two daughters, and when he’s not focused on a computer screen or answering everyone’s questions, he can be found hiking or rock climbing in the beautiful canyons of Utah.

Ben Woolley

Ben Woolley

Sr. Director of Product

Ben has an extensive background in search and social marketing, and his focus at SocialClimb is to help customers get in front of more potential patients. He has worked on the agency side of marketing, including starting an agency that was successfully acquired. Ben has also worked in-house and brings 15 years of marketing experience to the team.

He loves working with healthcare professionals to help them improve their online visibility and attract new patients that will grow their business.

Ben and his wife have one daughter and two sons, and they are on a family quest to visit all of the national parks in the U.S. He likes music, especially live music, but has decided he might be too old to go to shows all the time. He keeps tarantulas, which is NOT a crazy person hobby, and he drinks entirely too much Mtn Dew. You only live once, after all—or so he believes until proven otherwise.
