Passionate about serving and inspiring others and loves hosting, hot sauces, wake surfing, and dad jokes.” 

Steve worked at an executive level for many years, most recently as VP of Product Development for a wheelchair seating manufacturer. He is a creative genius who has designed wheelchair seats, backs, postural supports – you name it, he’s designed it! In an industry lacking variety, Steve is an expert at inventing new solutions.

Steve is passionate about helping people. He also understands the human body and its need for support. After continuously hearing how unhappy the general population is with office chairs options, he researched the market to confirm his hunch: no office chair existed that supported the human body in the right places. On top of that, there’d been little to no innovation for over 40 years. Steve set out to right this wrong, launching the inception of the Anthros chair, a solution designed with two intentions in mind: quality human experience and unmatched beauty.




“Lover of golf, Shark Tank, Bitcoin, Yacht Rock, and taco-rating across the world.”

Eric worked almost 20 years as an executive level marketer,  and most recently as VP of Marketing for the same wheelchair seating manufacturer as our CEO, Steve DuFresne.

Using his Marketing background and Entrepreneurial spirit, Eric realized that there was a massive hole in the market, and that no company had yet designed a chair using basic seating principles. People who sit were starving for a better solution for not only basic comfort, but to also improve their posture, reduce pain and maximize their performance. Current chair companies are full of wild marketing claims and empty promises, and Eric believes that consumers deserve better!

Eric’s knack for building passionate teams and casting a vision for a strong business plan brought Anthros to the market, ready to change the status quo.

With his impressive expertise in building omni-channel networks and extensive industry knowledge, Dave is thrilled to add value to the Anthros team and help the brand reach more people.
