Bio: Eric Zaltas is currently starting up a new company distributing sports nutrition products to help athletes improve their performance and get more out of their training. Zaltas comes to this startup with 25 years of experience in the sports nutrition/health & wellness & biotech pharma industries; an MS in Human Nutrition and a Diploma in Sports Nutrition from the International Olympic Committee. Zaltas is also a lifelong athlete and so serves as his own guinea pig with anything he recommends to athletes. In a previous lifetime he was on the US National Team in bicycle racing and is a former National Champion - and has cycled the equivalent of pedaling to the moon. He's also completed 20 marathons over the last 10 years, one full Ironman Triathlon and numerous others and doesn't plan to stop. From my resume: A scientific and business leader with a record of driving significant value and discipline into new and existing products. Superior ability to lead applied science and cross-functional teams, and to bridge the gap between the scientific/technical and consumer and commercial perspectives. Expertise in clinical research, nutrition, applied sciences, and product development, across varied business categories including food, supplement and pharma. Strong proficiency in influencing people at all levels within an organization, and in motivating junior level through PhD scientists.
