She is passionate about innovation and transformation, and her knowledge of systems and infrastructure will be a catalyst to better collaborate with our clients to transform their business."

"I see enormous potential for companies of all sizes looking to leverage their data and cement their relevance in a digitally transformed business landscape,” said Johnson. “It’s a passion of mine to create business environments that support positive change; develop IT leaders, women, and people of color; and lower the socioeconomic barriers inherent in this industry. I believe TIBCO has a great story to tell, and we will continue to shake up the status quo while striving to become part of the solution by supporting our customers’ businesses."

Johnson held senior management roles at the Lower Colorado River Authority where, as CIO, she spearheaded the organization's research and development, the upgrade of its critical infrastructure, and the improvement of meter data and billing accuracy.
