San Diego Rescue Mission has named Michael A. Johnson as its new Vice President of Development. Johnson comes to the Rescue Mission (www.sdrescue.org) from the Hunger 2 Help nonprofit, which he founded in 2010. The organization managed and motivated 14-year-old young men to serve others weekly through fund-raising, food procurement, and other non-monetary donations.
Prior to his venture into nonprofits, Johnson spent more than 23 years in the corporate world, most currently as the Vice President of Sales and part owner of Rimrock SMB where he implemented all sales processes and procedures. Previously he served as Sales Vice President for MJ Sports and Fotoball Sports, as a Sales/General Manager of Sports Products Corp., and as a sales consultant/manager for Technicomp/EXCEL training.
“We’re blessed and excited to have Michael join our team at San Diego Rescue Mission,” said Herb Johnson, the Rescue Mission’s President and CEO. “Michael has shown a deep spiritual connection and a true passion for nonprofit development in his work with the San Diego community.”
Johnson earned his B.S. in Psychology from John Carroll University in Ohio. He is an ABC Channel 10 News Leadership Award Winner (January 2012), and was nominated for the LEAD Visionary Award in 2012.
