Eric Lindquist


Eric was raised in Montana, moved to Chicago when he was in his early teens, and now currently resides in Minnesota. Eric graduated from Indiana University with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration where he majored in Marketing with a concentration in International Business. Before joining RELiON, Eric has enjoyed a relatively diverse career, spending a great deal of time early on with consumer product companies, mainly on the international side within the sports & recreation industry (Wilson Sporting Goods, Nike) – having served stints in Europe, Africa, and Latin America. Most of his early roles were in the areas of brand, product, and customer/channel management. Eric moved into more general management while with Polaris, serving as the GM of Snowmobiles. He then ventured into the entrepreneurial world and started a bio-specialty chemical company that focused on converting agricultural by-products into high-value component technologies and followed that up by running a building materials manufacturing company. At RELiON, Eric brings all that extensive experience and knowledge to oversee our business operations and carry out the company's vision. In his free time, Eric loves spending time in the mountains, on the water, or playing golf. Growing up in Montana, he still has a strong affinity for fly fishing.
