Eric Johnson

Director Product Experience & Engineering Lab Minneapolis


Eric employs unique insight into emerging technology to deliver value and spark digital transformation. He helped launch a successful innovation lab for a national university that not only created space for experimentation with emerging technology but also paid for itself with incremental innovations. 

He is focused on building new digital products with consumers at the center, working tirelessly to bring the voice of the user to the forefront and using human centered design principles to develop world-class digital experiences that also drive results for his clients. 

He possesses a unique blend of product and creative thinking, and technology expertise – a combination that enables him to bridge the gap between the art of the possible and the tactics of how to get there.

Eric joined West Monroe in 2019 in its acquisition of GoKart Labs. 

What makes Eric different

When he’s not building digital experiences for clients, he’s often still creating things – whether woodworking, prototyping with his 3D printer, soldering circuit boards, or writing code. He has seen almost every science fiction movie ever made.

He enjoys getting outside for hiking, camping, and fishing – and of all the seasons, he especially likes the cold. A motorcycling enthusiast, he has ridden coast to coast across the continental United States. 

Where Eric makes an impact

He finds meaning and passion in helping others. This can manifest in leading a team through solving complex client and end-user problems or working one-on-one with colleagues to support them in achieving personal or professional goals. 

Eric donates time and technology expertise to a non-profit education company and seeks out crowd-sourced efforts to donate 3D-printed objects and tools to those who need them.
