Eric Braden Zimmett is Principal at Braden Social Media LLC.
Eric's career in communications began in 2008. Fresh out of college as a Penn State University Communications Graduate, Eric started a freelance consulting business, which over the following seven years blossomed into Braden Social Media -- serving the Hospitality Industry: food, drinks, & events.
Now, eight years later, Eric has worked with some of the most respected hospitality brands in Central Pa, including Penn State Golf Courses; Toftrees Golf Resort; Kelly’s Steak & Seafood, Federal Taphouse in State College and Harrisburg; Shaner Properties; Marriott; Hilton; and IHG Hotels and Resorts.
Eric has also developed course material on behavioral economics in marketing, Attention & Intent, which was first taught through Summer Study Programs at Penn State University (2014).
“I like Eric’s perspective. He always lays out a solid business case for why people should use technology to enhance their business. It’s stuff that small business owners need to know.” — Jay Hauser, Facebook / Amazon
