Timothy Johnson is a corporate communications, marketing and public relations expert based in his native Silicon Valley.
Johnson has practiced as an independent consultant since early 2008, building a very private, boutique, and aggressive consultancy in the face of one of the toughest U.S. economic environments ever.
His services include subcontractors, but only on an as-needed based, specific to client projects, and pre-approved by clients.
Between 2006 and 2008, Johnson headed all corporate communications for JanglJangl – an early-stage, consumer-focused telephony company. While there, he crafted a zero-to-sixty plan to engage influencers, and ultimately his team achieved coverage worldwide, including TechCrunch, USA Today, GigaOM, Reuters, The New York Times, The Washington Post, ABC-TV, and much more.
Prior to Jangl, Johnson was a PR exec with several established firms. He helped co-found Voce Communications in 2000, becoming only the sixth employee to join. When he left in 2006, he’d helped raise agency revenues from less than $500,000 to nearly $6 million per year. He’d overseen and played key management roles with such clients as Yahoo!, Brocade, Network Appliance, Fujitsu, Network Appliance – and helped formulate go-to-market and PR strategies for numerous start-ups.
Before Voce, Johnson worked as a senior-level advisor as “big agencies” like Weber-Shandwick and Porter-Novelli.
