'Transformative digital era’ motivates ITDS VP

During more than two decades of leadership in information technology, Eric Dehn has found success depends on much more than software and hardware.

“Capturing hearts and minds is job number one,” shares Gundersen’s new vice president of Enterprise Architecture and Solution Design. “I strongly believe we all need purpose, accomplishment, and, most importantly, each other. With authentic connection, we can unlock each other’s creativity and have a lot of fun.”

“I am thrilled to be joining Gundersen to improve health in the communities we serve and enrich every life we touch. I am motivated to work together to leverage technology and innovation to provide world class service and experiences for patients and caregivers.”

Eric brings a passion for people and purpose to Gundersen from Thrivent Financial, where he most recently served as vice president of enterprise architecture, engineering, and cloud infrastructure.

“My initial focus at Gundersen will be on understanding people, process, products, and partners,” Eric shares. “This includes listening intently and learning from my colleagues’ expertise about Gundersen’s capabilities, processes and technologies. From this understanding, we can work together to define priorities for my team and have fun delivering on those priorities.”

“Much like the financial services industry, we are in a transformative digital era for healthcare.” Technology and techniques are available to us to minimize friction and frustration for patients and caregivers. I am excited about the opportunity to be part of a world-class organization and the possibilities ahead.”

Eric received a bachelor's degree in Biology from St. Olaf College (Northfield, Minn.) and a master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
