Bio

Brad J. Johnson, who has nearly two decades of management experience in university marketing, publishing and public relations, will help lead Methodist’s strategies and initiatives in relation to internal and outward messaging. His key areas of focus include, but are not limited to, enrollment, advancement, alumni, and academic departments; also management of web, social media, video/photography, print, writing, design, brand, vendors, media/public relations, advertising and other constituent communications.

Johnson is passionate about higher education and spent the past decade in charge of all marketing and messaging for Asbury University in Kentucky, helping set record numbers in enrollment (undergrad, grad and degree-completion), development (capital campaigns and events) and marketing strategies (new web site, social media/digital marketing campaigns, media relations, etc.).

Community is of great value to Johnson. He has spent the past decade-plus as a board member (chair) with an inner-city ministry for the homeless and has led numerous university-student mission trips (focusing on homelessness and social justice) to underserved communities in Chicago, Jacksonville, New York and abroad. He’s also been a board member and coach with the Miracle League (baseball, basketball and football programs for children and adults with special needs) for more than a decade.

Johnson’s experience includes time as the Director of Publishing for IMG College, the world’s premier sports marketing company, and Content Director for TeamTalk (an international marketing agency). His journalism/marketing career began as a writer/editor/designer at The Charlotte Observer and has included state and national recognition/awards. Prior to that, he was a two-sport collegiate athlete (soccer and baseball) who earned two degrees (double-majoring in journalism and history) from Indiana University.

Married to DeAnna for nearly 30 years, the Johnsons have two children (Matthew and Niklas).
