Executive director
Orlando Venues

As a city employee, Johnson runs Amway Center, among the NBA’s finest arenas, and Camping World Stadium, the former Citrus Bowl renamed in 2016. Under Johnson’s leadership, the stadium, now 81 years old, underwent a $208 million renovation, bringing new life to the only building that plays host to three college bowl games. Johnson managed the Lakeland (Fla.) Civic Center before moving to Orlando in 2004 to operate the old O-Arena.
