Vice President, Corporate Development, Marketing, & Pmo, United States Cold Storage

Dr. Johnson uses her strategic experience and expertise at USCS to “identify smarter, more efficient and safer ways to feed America and to ensure we exceed our growth goals.”

A 16-year veteran of the cold chain industry, she recently defended her doctoral dissertation on organizational innovativeness in cold chain 3PL. “I’m passionate about expanding the thought leadership within our industry and company,” she says.

She is an instructor at the Cold Chain Institute, the Global Cold Chain Alliance’s core provider of education and training. The institute supplies key resources “to develop companies’ most important assets — talent.”

“I’m passionate about continuing to mentor and provide a roadmap to leadership positions across the cold chain industry,” Dr. Johnson explains. She hopes her success inspires other women to seek leadership roles. “For those just starting their careers in the cold chain, the sky is the limit! You hold the power to make a difference for your career, your company, and your industry,” she says.
