Erin Fujimoto is Co-Founder of the comfort-focused clothing brand, Tommy John. Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Erin studied finance at Arizona State University and began her career as a financial adviser at JP Morgan. While at J.P Morgan she built an e-commerce website selling natural wellness products, and was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug. It was her enterprising spirit that inspired the founding of Tommy John with her now-husband Tom Patterson, in 2008. Together they’ve reimagined the fabric, fit, and function of men’s underwear and loungewear. In 2018, Fujimoto led the team in successfully introducing the brands first ever women’s collection.
Today, Erin leads Tommy John’s women division, the brands fast growing division of business; as well as co-leads the overall company strategy, brand, and product vision. Under Erin’s leadership, Tommy John won ‘Brand of the Year’ at the Underfashion Club’s 2020 Femmy Awards, the industry’s highest honorary event. Some of Erin’s additional passions include health and wellness, empowering female leaders and giving back to communities in need.
