Eric Kemner
Senior Program Manager

The more complicated, the better. Bring on the moving pieces — Eric is an expert at herding cats.

No wonder he got into product development. With an education in engineering and interest in design, it has always been a perfect fit. From his first job out of college as an Army officer throughout his career as a project manager, Eric has many years of experience leading teams to get the job done — successfully, on time, and within budget. The ultimate reward for his effort is seeing the product in use, making a positive impact on the user and community.

Eric earned undergraduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering and in Design, Innovation & Society (an integrated design-engineering-technology program) from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a Masters in Product Development from Carnegie Mellon. Before joining Bresslergroup, he managed development projects for the military, security, and medical device industries, and durable consumer products.

Outside of work Eric likes to hang out with his wife and two sons, cheer on Philly sports teams, and brew (and drink) beer.

What’s your favorite all-time product and why? The General Dynamics M1 Abrams Main Battle Tank, because it’s close to my heart. Finish this sentence: Design is ... ... giving all aspects of a product their due consideration: form, function, and cost, all finding a harmonious solution. Any hidden talents? According to my kids, I do a pretty good Chewbacca impersonation.
