Eric Fortenberry is a passionate entrepreneur who founded JobTread, a construction management software company, in 2019 after serving as interim CEO for a General Contracting company where he built the first version of JobTread to help streamline and remedy their broken processes.

After successfully implementing the platform and increasing their gross profit by 43%, Eric knew he was on to something great! He spent the last two years rehiring many of his former employees, building out the platform, and making it ready for the broader market.

Prior to JobTread, Eric founded OrgSync, a SaaS student engagement platform, in 2007 after quitting his investment banking job where he focused on high growth middle market, web-based technology companies. In 2015, after selling OrgSync to approximately 650 universities and serving nearly 20 million users across 13 countries, the Company was acquired by Leeds Equity.

Eric has been named to Inc. Magazine’s 30 Under 30 List of the World’s Coolest Young Entrepreneurs under the age of 30 and received awards at the White House and United Nations after being named to the Empact 100 List showcasing the Best Companies Started and Run by Young Entrepreneurs. OrgSync was also recognized multiple times as a Best Place to Work and a fastest growing company for its company culture, rapid growth, and innovative solutions.

Eric is an Eagle Scout and holds a BBA in Finance and Accounting from the University of Texas at Austin and a Masters in Software Engineering from the University of Texas at Dallas.
