Meet Our Team

Eric Townsend
Title: Service Technician
Hometown: Boone, NC

Hi, I’m Eric!


Not only am I employed by Tar Heel but I also happen to be a former customer. After experiencing firsthand what a great and necessary service was being provided I decided I wanted the opportunity to do the same for others with a company that I knew I could trust. Before coming aboard at Tar Heel I did some work putting up tents, and constructing stages and dance floors. Luckily many of the skills I learned in that line of work, such as surveying sites and planning for unexpected scenarios helped me transition smoothly and quickly into my role here at Tar Heel.


I have a degree in Recreation Management and a CDL Passenger Endorsement which I still make use of by driving buses and limousines as a side business. In my spare time you can find me spending time with my wife, our 3 beautiful daughters, and our many animals. I also enjoy detailing vehicle sound systems, and playing friendly games of basketball and volleyball on occasion.


I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”
