Eric Newman

Founder/Chief Play Officer/Board Member

Eric is the founder and Chief Play Officer of Roc Solid Foundation who also sits on our board of directors. With his mind on the mission, he manages the staff and oversees all key initiatives, including Roc Solid’s strategic growth plan and major corporate partner relationships.

As a pediatric cancer survivor, Eric is all too familiar with the battle a family faces when their child is diagnosed. And that’s what drives him daily toward the vision of one day building hope for every child fighting cancer. He is an avid reader and dedicated leader who speaks to large groups regularly, sharing his personal story. With a “think big, act small” approach, Eric puts the highest value on relationships and those who have supported the organization as it’s grown.
