Management Team

Eric Barroca

CEO & Director of the Management Board

As the 5th employee to join Nuxeo, Eric brings a passion and commitment for software like no other, with a penchant for open source and open standards. Having worn almost every hat one could wear at a single company, he’s spent the better part of 11 years dedicated to making a difference in the content management market by creating software for developers with an emphasis on quality, modularity and agility. A hands-on CEO, he loves building the company, working side by side with his entire team, championing this model of open source software development and strategy while ensuring the two remain synchronous. He might be a techie, but he’s a foodie at heart—don’t be fooled...he can still prepare a 5 course meal without ever missing a tweet!
