How we got here

It started on the ice. Co-founders James Cole and Todd Doyle met on a hockey team, became fast-friends, and discovered that their professional interests were aligned too. The concept of ETR started to brew over victory beers.

The two decided to apply their years of learning from various corporate positions to a new team challenge—this time, off the ice. Over the past decade ETR has grown from two people working out of a small apartment to a diverse team of seasoned professionals around the country.

Todd and James continue to set the bar high for the team, seeking to discover and take advantage of emerging trends and cutting-edge technology, and applying them to challenges that demand the highest-possible level of execution.

Who we are

ETR is a team of creative problem-solvers. Guided first and foremost by quality, ETR sets the bar high. Our passion is obvious throughout the process and shines through to the final work.
