Johnnie joined Resource Consulting Group in October 2016 as President. He works closely with the management team to oversee the day-to-day processes and systems that support our operations, assist our wealth advisors in serving our diverse clients and families, and provide the long-term strategic vision for the firm.
Johnnie is a 1980 graduate of the University of Florida with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a 1981 graduate with a master’s in taxation with honors. After earning his CPA in 1982, Johnnie spent the next 30 years providing tax, business, and succession planning advice to privately held businesses and high-net-worth families with Arthur Andersen, KPMG, McGladrey (RSM), and Tedder, James, Worden & Associates. The common theme throughout was Johnnie’s focus on adding value, building trust, and securing the future of his clients. For the last five years, Johnnie has been “hands on” leading a privately-owned Florida trucking company, and developing his family owned berry farm/vineyard in North Carolina.
As a fifth-generation Floridian, Johnnie has been very active in supporting organizations in the community by taking leadership roles with numerous non-profits including Boys Town of Central Florida, Junior Achievement, YMCA, Fisher School of Accounting at the University of Florida, First United Methodist Church of Winter Park, Interlachen Country Club, Gilchrist Club, High Country Wine Growers Association, and Friends of Beech Outreach. This active involvement led to Johnnie receiving the Orlando Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 award, the Central Florida YMCA Volunteer award, and the McGladrey Partner Achievement award.
Johnnie enjoys spending time outside in both Florida and North Carolina playing golf, biking, hiking, and fly fishing.
