Bruce D. Johnson      

Business Growth Strategist & Author of “Breaking Through Plateaus”

Bruce D. Johnson is a business growth strategist and the author of “Breaking Through Plateaus” as well as, “Becoming Scalable.”

He’s an expert in the areas of business growth, strategic planning, leadership, systems thinking and marketing to attract and retain more clients and customers. He graduated with a B.B.A. in Accounting from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1983. He then took an unusual turn and spent the next 22 years of his life in church ministry (including earning his M.Div. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL), the last fifteen and a half of those at a church he started with two families that grew to two thousand people and $2.7 million in revenue.

He left pastoral ministry in 2005 and has been coaching, speaking and consulting with business owners and entrepreneurs since then. So, Johnson knows what it’s like to sit in your chair. He knows what it’s like to start from nothing and then build something large. He knows what it’s like to cast vision, inspire people, build teams, solve problems, innovate new approaches, create systems, raise money, build facilities, grow new organizations, provide customer service, execute plans, and ensure alignment. And, on top of all that, he’s also given over 1,000 different presentations.

A sampling of some of his clients have included organizations and companies like Citigroup, IBM, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Suburban Propane, eGroup, The Maryland Soccerplex, TruPlace, Maple Life Insurance, Profitable Properties, FileBound, Open Text, DTI, The Association of Information and Image Management, The National Institutes of Health, Montgomery County Government, The Vacation Rental Managers Association, the National Sports Performance Association, Hyland Software, Shulman Rogers, McCay Kiddy, Fulcrum Staffing, DTI, The Better Life Company, IMS and a number of large churches.

He currently lives in Mount Pleasant, SC, a suburb of Charleston, SC, with his wife, Jacquie (celebrating 36+ years of marriage) and they have two adult daughters (Chelsea and Brooke), two sons-in-law and three grandchildren (with three more on the way). Johnson is a past board member of the Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce and a past member of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce. In addition, he’s also a sponsor and advisor for the Harbor Accelerator in Charleston, SC.
