Erik Church, Chef des Operations

Erik Church joined 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in November, 2011. As COO, Erik’s responsibility is to translate the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? vision into strategic and operational plans that are realistic and capable of delivering positive growth results for the company.

Prior to arriving at the Junktion, Erik led EF Education Canada, the largest privately-held education company in the world, where he was able to more than double the company’s profits during tough economic times. Erik became President of EF Education Canada in 2007 after working with the company for eight years in a variety of roles. He was President of EF Explore America, President of EF College Break, and Executive Vice President of Global Marketing.

Erik is a hands-on leader who believes the best way to learn anything is by living it, so he travelled extensively to interact with customers and suppliers to make sure EF was providing the best possible experience. The summer prior to joining 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, Erik travelled to Kenya, Ecuador, Holland, France, England, Switzerland and China.

Before joining EF Education Canada, Erik was Senior Vice President at EONS, Senior Vice President for Student Online Solutions, Vice President for Plum Traders, a College Pro franchise owner, and a leadership consultant for Acacia Educational Foundation. In 1991, he moved to the US and worked in Chicago, Boston and New York.

Actual Customer Reviews(Typos and all:)

"The two young gentlemen who arrived early at our house(because we had a notary appointment soon afterwards)were phenominal! They were extremely helpful, patient and kind. They even went above and beyond by helping my husband with a heavy object. We spoke often the following week, about how nice it was to experience such great service in this day and age. We've noticed over the past few years that good Customer Service seems to be a lost art. But NOT at GOT JUNK!! Furthermore, we were impressed with the initial contact we made. We called at 4pm requesting service the following morning. Honestly, we did not think it would be possible and were bracing for a response of "Oh sorry, you must book at least a week in advance", but that was not the case. Your agent (who was equally nice and helpful as your workers) assured us that the guys could be at our place for 8am. And they were! I HIGHLY recommend this company and have already mentioned it to several friends. We will definitely use your services again when we move in another couple of years. Thank you GOT JUNK for making our move so easy and worry free!!! Sincerely, Stacy Hugman & Richard Frenette Montreal, QC"

Another 1-800-GOT-JUNK? happy customer.
