Terry Johnson in New Executive Role with Generational Equity

By Generational Equity

Terry Johnson

Generational Equity is pleased to announce that Terry K. Johnson has accepted the position of Chief Revenue and Strategy Officer with our firm. He had previously worked in a business development capacity with us for several years prior.

Mr. Johnson graduated from Auburn University in 1983 with a B.S. in Organization Management and soon joined his family firm, Johnson Industries. At the time the company had annual revenues of less than $1 million, with 5 employees. In 2001 Terry was named CEO of the company and led it both domestically and internationally through hyper growth and change, reaching annual revenues of $300 million with over 800 associates.

Johnson Industries was recognized by Fortune Magazine as one of the nation's foremost leading companies in organizational culture development, specifically in retaining and motivating associates. Johnson Industries was acquired by a Fortune 200 NYSE public company in 1999. Mr. Johnson then served as President/CEO of this public company subsidiary for 5 years, with revenues more than doubling in this time period.

His new role with Generational Equity will include leading the sales and marketing organization, including its seminar staff, seminar leaders, managing directors, and corporate development. He will also assist the firm's president in overall corporate strategic planning and development efforts.

"My passion is building and growing companies, developing organizational cultures that empower and inspire individuals to heightened personal and professional growth, which translates into competitive advantages in the marketplace," stated Johnson. "I am very excited about my new role within this great organization. Our growth opportunities are enormous and I believe God has tremendous things in store for our future."

Ryan Binkley, President of the Generational Group, said, "We are thrilled to have Terry join our leadership team in this newly created role within our firm. His experiences in helping grow his family firm to over $300 million in revenue, along with his entrepreneurial vision and M&A background, will lend themselves to helping us reach new levels of growth and client satisfaction."
