Meet Troy Johnson, Chief Growth Officer, Slalom

Responsibilities

I work with Slalom’s executive team to open new offices throughout the US. From new market strategy to hiring initial leadership teams, I ensure that Slalom builds and executes its market expansion plans. I also work with national leadership teams to recruit for and market Slalom to the consulting community across the country.

Leadership style

You never stop learning how to be a better leader. I always start with the premise that humility is important, and to lead is to really focus on helping those around you be more successful. I've also learned that a leadership team will take an organization further than any single leader can. Slalom’s ability to assemble a group of leaders who know how to challenge but complement each other is really special to see in action.

What makes Slalom great?

First, our innovative local model. No unwanted travel and a deep investment in the communities where we work and live make Slalom a really special place.

Second, Slalom is a great place to build friendships and a fun place to be every day. My best friends work here. And third, passion. The passion our people have not only for consulting and our clients, but for Slalom itself is amazing.

What attracted you to Slalom?

Right time, right place. Slalom CEO Brad Jackson said, “If you join, you will have the opportunity to help build a 100M+ company.” Pretty bold considering at the time there were less than five employees. But the ability to build, grow, and make a difference in a company that had a big vision was very exciting. And today, we're a $1B company. 

Experience

Prior to joining Slalom in 1994, I worked as an analyst at First Interstate Bank, and in sales for the Colorado Rockies baseball team.

Education

I attended the University of Iowa with a double major: Economics and Communication Studies.

Hobbies and charities

I golf, snowboard, and play guitar, and work with organizations that support homeless children.
