Barton Johnson is a career business executive in the financial services industry with a more than fifty year resume in virtually all functional leadership roles at a variety of 'best-in-class' companies (including Manufacturers Hanover, Mellon Bank, GE Capital, Lehman Brothers, and others). As an 'intrapreneur' he has a long track record of notable successes in building and monetizing business units for huge earnings and market value. Now, as an 'entrepreneir' , he is in the process of launching an important and socially-significant new business.
Bart has always been a modern ‘Renaissance Man’ with a passion for creative activities. His intellectual curiosity has spawned a sense of wanderlust, and he has lived in a total of seven states while visiting forty-two others (North Dakota is the only remaining state on his bucket list).. He is an avid world traveler having journeyed to forty-three countries on five continents in a variety of civilized and adventure trips.
Bart has been a winemaker with his own private labels, first Bart Noir (Black Bart) and more recently Entendre Wines. But his true passion is now and always has been writing. He has authored and published award-winning business articles and newsletters, travel articles, a memoir, short stories, and books of poetry.
In addition to the books featured in this website, Bart is diligently working on a number of new projects including a creative blog series that explores the theme that an individual can be both an outstanding performer in the business world AND a prolific producer of serious and important creative materials.
