Directing Future Technology at Herman Miller
Ryan Anderson is Herman Miller’s director of future technology, a job that focuses on the intersection of emerging technologies and the workplace.
While there has always been a relationship between the physical work environment and the technological tools of the era, the exponential rate of technological change is creating new challenges for the workplace to remain productive and relevant.
Ryan’s work aims at understanding and accommodating the emerging behavioral patterns caused by technological change in order to ultimately provide a better experience for people at work.
Before coming to Herman Miller, Ryan spent 17 years in the office furniture industry with extensive background in social media, technology, and marketing strategy. He’s based in Grand Rapids, Mich., where he is a Community Trustee through the Center for Community Leadership and is involved in several nonprofit boards.
