Speaker Biography 

Dan Johnson's 39 years as a public administrator have been served in a variety of capacities in the DFW Metroplex. Prior to his move to Richardson in 1996, Johnson served for 11 years at the City of Carrollton, Texas, including three years as City Manager, and eight years as Deputy City Manager. Earlier service included responsibilities as Director of Regional Services for three years at the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG, D-FW metro area), and he was Budget Officer in Sherman, Texas, for five years.

Johnson was appointed to the position of City Manager by the Richardson City Council in 2012. Prior to serving as city manager, Johnson served as Richardson's Deputy City Manager from 1996 until his appointment to City Manager. As Deputy City Manager, Johnson served as the Chief Operating Officer (COO) for the City, and, was instrumental in the City's achievement of a AAA rating from both Standard & Poor's and Moody's, a distinction shared by only six other cities in Texas and 6 percent of cities nationwide.

Johnson also played a central role in Richardson's economic development impact. Johnson has been active in development initiatives around DART station-area Transit-Oriented and Mixed-Use Development land uses. He played a lead role in the use of planned development tools for the creation of the 200-acre "CityLine" development, anchored by State Farm and Raytheon. Johnson also served as project manager for the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts and Corporate Presentations at Richardson’s Galatyn Park, and led the creation of a 900-acre Richardson Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone to support redevelopment initiatives along South Central Expressway.

Johnson holds a Bachelor's degree in political science from Austin College, and a Master's degree in Public Administration from the University of North Texas. He is also a graduate of the Public Executive Institute of the LBJ School of Public Affairs. Johnson was named the “Administrator of the Year” by the Texas Municipal Library Directors Association (TMLDA) and is the 1995 Distinguished Alumni recipient for the Department of Public Administration at the University of North Texas. He is a Past-President for the Urban Management Assistants of North Texas (UMANT), the North Texas City Management Association (NTCMA), and the Texas City Management Association (TCMA).

Dan serves on the Methodist Richardson Medical Center Advisory Board, the University of Texas at Dallas Development Board and the Advisory Council for the UT Dallas School of Economic, Political & Policy Sciences. He also serves as Treasurer and Board Executive Committee Member of the North Texas Commission.

Keynote Synopsis

City of Richardson City Manager Dan Johnson will share how the work plan of local government is shaped by policy and missions. The City Manager's job is to translate these desires into projects and programs. Using examples of the new CityLine development, Street Maintenance, and Main Street Redevelopment, Mr. Johnson will present project management insights around stakeholder and integration management, strategies that impact procurement and city support in economic development, and the ongoing goal of community quality as he shares key elements of these important Richardson efforts. As the CEO of an exciting DFW Metroplex city operation, Dan will remind us of the many facets of serving the City of Richardson, and how prevalent formal and informal project management skills are in his leadership responsibilities.
