Director of Business Operations
With Erik as our Director of Business Operations, we can rest easy knowing that he is actively working to keep Harris Financial running smoothly and efficiently. He takes the lead on projects when we explore new directions, ensures that we have the right tools for the job, and loves developing our cohesive team so that we can thrive in our mission.
Erik spent his childhood in a tiny logging town on the road to Mt. St. Helens. In his early twenties, he moved to rural Skagit County in Washington to raise a family and spent about 20 years there before moving to Montana to join our team.
Erik has a strong heart to serve and his varied background has provided him with a lot of skills to do so. He has an Associate Degree in Business Administration and served in administrative support for a county Emergency Medical Services department. He also worked as a Real Estate Appraiser and appraised many residential properties. However, most of his life's focus has been serving others in Christian ministry, including hosting a bustling ministry house for college students.
Erik and his lovely wife Angie have three great kids who are quickly entering adulthood. His wife and oldest daughter own and operate Wheat Montana in Kalispell. In his spare time, Erik enjoys playing his piano, mandolin, and concertina; especially Worship, Folk, and Celtic music. He also loves watching movies, reading books, having deep conversations with friends, and playing board and card games.
Erik is a detail-oriented, authentic, and trustworthy professional who is always striving for excellence. He loves that Harris Financial cares about our clients and we are thrilled to have Erik’s excellent brain and caring heart as part of our team!
