As CEO of Globe Runner, Eric McGehearty goes above and beyond in order to achieve quantifiable results for clients. Founded in 2009 during a devastating economic slump, Globe Runner is one of the fastest-growing online marketing companies in Texas, and now employs a team of twenty elite individuals.
Beyond direct results, Eric pushes the boundaries when it comes to what a business can achieve in the public sphere. He’s a firm believer in conscious capitalism, and works to ensure that anyone in association with Globe Runner gains from that relationship – whether it’s a client, an employee or a vendor.
Eric is dyslexic and feels called to encourage others. A former spokesperson for Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic, he continues to advocate for people with dyslexia and speaks at schools, educational groups, and conferences.
Eric earned his Master in Fine Arts for sculpture from the University of North Texas, and brings his artistic drive and creative vision to the culture at Globe Runner. His work has been exhibited across the country.
McGehearty is an active member in the local entrepreneurial space as a board member of DFW’s Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) and a mentor at Health Wildcatters, a healthcare startup incubator.
Eric and Globe Runner have been featured in publications like Forbes, The Dallas Morning News, Addison Magazine and the Denton Record Chronicle among others. Of the myriad roles he plays – artist, entrepreneur and advocate – Eric most cherishes his role as husband to his wife Heather and father to their four children: Keegan, Trevor, Elliot, and Claire.
