Eric Partaker, Co-Founder & Brand Evangelist. Eric grew up in Chicago where he fell in love with both Mexican food and the hospitality industry. He helped pay his way through school with various restaurant and bar jobs and graduated from the University of Illinois with a Finance degree in 1999. Before Chilango Eric worked together with Dan at Skype in London. He was also a consultant with McKinsey & Company where he learned how to make the most amazing PowerPoint presentations the world has ever seen. Eric’s obsessed with setting direction and strategy while making sure every aspect of Chilango shines as vibrantly as possible.
Dan Houghton, Co-Founder & Burrito Mathematician. Dan has a first class degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University – and although Eric might have the finance degree he can’t compete with Dan’s mathematical genius. Dan used to work at Skype with Eric. Before that he worked in mobile marketing and content and was the founder of TextMagic, an online text messaging service. These days he’s full-time at Chilango of course, acquiring and opening new restaurants, reviewing the numbers, the finer detail of the food and operating systems, and generally making sure the wheels don’t come off.
