The Mid-States Minority Supplier Development Council’s board of directors recently named Daryle Johnson interim president and CEO, replacing Carolyn Mosby who announced her departure last month.
He has been a consultant to the Council for the past year, serving as the program director for the Accelerate 100+ Program.
Johnson has more than 20 years of strategic business creation, growth, ownership and advisory roles. He has spent most of his business years either as a diverse business owner, coaching diverse businesses or serving in a strategic growth capacity.
Having worked for the Mid-States MSDC in the past as a program manager, he is acutely aware of the needs and challenges facing diverse business owners today.
Johnson’s experience has led him to believe that success is a process, and he intends to leverage this belief to apply it to the Council’s success. He has business strategy knowledge around startups, business models, research and analysis, go-to-market strategy, sales process design, business scaling and business valuations. Johnson also has industry experience in manufacturing, artificial intelligence, application development, information technology and cloud solutions.
“We are happy to have Daryle step in and lead the organization during this time,” Dennis Truax, Mid-States MSDC’s chair. “With his background and commitment to supplier development, we are certain that he will continue to build on the solid foundation that Carolyn built the past 11 years.”
