Microsoft U.S.

Microsoft has enjoyed something of a revival over the last decade, but the company is not slowing down as it faces off aggressive competition in the form of Google, Amazon, and others. Johnson joined as president in 2017, just in time to be a part of the transformation by leading the company’s largest sales subsidiary, with a 7,000-person field team and a $40 billion profit & loss sheet. She’s responsible for growing all of Microsoft’s solutions, services, and support revenues across both the public and private sectors in the United States. Johnson spent nearly four years at GE, where she was a champion of inclusion and women’s advancement, leading several major diversity initiatives such as the “Balance the Equation” drive to hire 20,000 women technologists by 2020. Prior to that, she was at Oracle for nearly six years.
