As the founder of the well-respected media and public affairs consulting firm, SE2, Eric Sondermann sold his interest to his long-time partners in 2014 in order to devote his next chapter to civic pursuits, his media commentary and some limited, high-level strategic consulting. A high-profile political analyst and pundit, Eric is a regular panelist on Channel 12’s “Colorado Inside Out” on Friday evenings and co-hosts the “Colorado Decides” political debate series. Beyond these television roles, he is called upon as a go-to source of independent political insight by a laundry list of local, national and international publications and media outlets.
As a civic leader, in addition to his Board role at Roots, Eric serves on the Boards of the Colorado I Have a Dream Foundation (immediate past Chair), Catapult Leadership (past Chair), the Colorado League of Charter Schools and the Colorado Symphony. In years past, he had a long-standing leadership commitment to The Logan School and also served on the Boards of Urban Peak, Colorado Public Radio and the Children’s Museum of Denver.
Eric and his wife Tracy Dunning are the parents of Katrina who now works in Chicago and Clarke who attends college in Anchorage, Alaska.
