He also held CIO positions at the Department of Defense and the U.S. Navy.
Johnson, who brings more than two decades of industry experience, will be responsible for overseeing the implementation of IBM’s federal government sales strategy.
He joined IBM from Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) where he most recently served group vice president of federal cloud sales.
