Eric Terry

Eric Terry is a seasoned leader in hospitality and tourism who has spent more than thirty years marketing restaurants, hotels, casinos and entertainment. He currently serves as the President of the Virginia Restaurant, Lodging, and Travel Association (VRLTA).  In this role he serves at the chief advocate for the hospitality and tourism industry in the Commonwealth. Eric leads the charge to protect existing hospitality and tourism-friendly laws and lobby for new legislation when needed by working with the most influential and powerful people in both the industry and politics.

 As one of the early graduates for the HTM department I have seen the evolution of the program into one of the most respected hospitality programs in the nation.
