Eric Austin Litman (born August 1, 1973) is an American entrepreneur and angel investor. Litman co-founded Proxicom, built Viaduct from a one-man shop through a merger with the Wolf Group, and was the founder and CEO of Medialets, a mobile ad serving and advertising analytics company acquired by WPP plc.
He has been profiled and quoted by The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Wired, and Fast Company, was named a 2010 Game Changer by New York Enterprise Report, and in 2011 was called one of the "best operators in online advertising" by TechCrunch

While in college, he worked in pre-sales support and engineering at NeXT, the start-up founded by Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Litman then went on to serve as a Senior Systems Engineer for Digicon, building secure, distributed networks and applications for the U.S. Department of Defense.
Litman and three other colleagues from Digicon founded Proxicom in 1991.
