Erik Johnson

Managing Director

As a Managing Director at The Bulfinch Group, my mission every day is to help others maximize their potential and become the best version of themselves.  After coaching Division I basketball for 24 years, I joined The Bulfinch Group in January 2019.  In my new role I believe I can affect even more people, in even more impactful ways, than I could coaching in athletics. 

My goal as a Managing Director at The Bulfinch Group is to attract the best people possible to join our team, and then help to develop the character and performance of each to become their best personal and professional selves. My new position has much synergy with my past two plus decades as a coach.

Prior to joining The Bulfinch Group, I spent the last 10 years as a Division I Head Women's Basketball Coach, most recently at Boston College in the ACC and previously at the University of Denver.  Before becoming a head coach, I spent 14 years as a Division I Women's Basketball Assistant Coach at Boston College, the University of San Diego, and the University of Rhode Island. 

I played basketball at the University of California, San Diego where I earned my B.A. in psychology along with a minor in education.  While starting my coaching career at the University of Rhode Island, I also earned my M.A. in adult education.  

Outside the office, I conduct workshops for the Positive Coaching Alliance which teaches character through sports to young athletes, youth coaches, and sports parents. Basketball remains a huge part of my life as I currently coach my daughter's AAU basketball team and serve as an assistant coach at Needham High School.  I live 5 minutes from our beautiful offices in Needham with my wife Laura, who played professional volleyball on the USA Volleyball team after playing collegiately at The Ohio State University. Our daughters Daly and Avery attend Needham High School. Our 4-year-old son Davis passed away unexpectedly in 2010.  We miss him dearly and count our many blessings every day.
