Seasoned Industry Leader Tapped to Drive Global Growth and Product Innovation
Innovative Ergonomic Solutions (IES), an organization with inventive brands that create ergonomic and wellness workplace solutions, has named Steven Bramson as President effective today. Bramson brings more than 25 years of executive leadership experience to the position, most recently serving as President of Humanscale North America, a designer, manufacturer, and global provider of ergonomic products and high-performance seating.
Bramson will be responsible for growing IES’s global footprint and overseeing the sales, product development and customer service functions across IES’s constellation of brands, which include HAT Collective, Innovative Design Works, CompuCaddy and ErgoTech. The brands – which offer product solutions ranging from design-forward height-adjustable tables and mobile workstations to monitor arms and workplace accessories – serve multiple channels and markets including both corporate and home office, healthcare, government and point-of-sale. Bramson will also be tasked with accelerating IES’s value proposition to increase workplace productivity wherever work happens through better ergonomics. He will report to IES CEO Dave Fox.
“Steven brings an extraordinary mix of industry, leadership, sales, operations and financial experience along with a proven track record of igniting growth that will elevate IES to a new level,” said Fox. “His demonstrated ability to build high-performance teams that inspire new product innovation and align functions within an organization will enable IES to bring a more robust set of solutions to our customers.”
As Humanscale’s President of North America from 2016 to 2019, Bramson transformed the company’s infrastructure to drive greater efficiencies while overseeing the company’s Architect & Design, Commercial, Government, OEM, and Retail divisions. During his 24 years at Humanscale, he propelled the company to achieve significant annual year-over-year growth. Bramson also designed new Global, National and Healthcare account teams and departments which led to increased revenue and market share. He started his career at Humanscale in 1996 as a District Sales Manager and quickly rose through the ranks and served in multiple sales, senior management and executive level positions.
“IES and its board have a compelling vision for how its brands can synergistically align and complement each other to meet the needs of tomorrow’s worker and workplace,” said Bramson. “I’m eager to build on the company’s strong foundation and leverage all the opportunities available to create more value for our customers and accelerate our growth.”
