Erin joined Polaris in 2018 as the director of community and content. She is responsible for storytelling and relationship building across the portfolio.
Erin began her career as a journalist for Xconomy, covering Boston’s innovative technology and healthcare companies. She switched gears to work in marketing at the mobile fitness app Runkeeper (later acquired by ASICS). Erin wore many hats in her four-plus years at Runkeeper and is most proud of building a high-performing marketing team and helping the company articulate its beloved brand.
