Lone Star College-Kingwood hired Bridgett Johnson as the new vice president of administrative services. She will replace Dr. John O'Malley, who retired in 2015.
"In my new role, I plan to accomplish several milestones that align directly with the strategic vision and cultural beliefs of the college," Johnson said. "My goal is to work with the amazing team to steward the financial needs of the organization while ensuring the student experience is not comprised."
As vice president of administrative services, Johnson is tasked with managing and leading the college's budget, facility needs and various construction projects through sound decisions, experience and team work. She believes her duties begin with the students and being a servant leader to the community at large.
"My initial job duties will be to gain insight from my peers and team that will enable me to better achieve the specifics of my role and serve LSC-Kingwood," she said.
Johnson is an experienced business leader with a background in non-profit organizations. She has more than 20 years in the facilities, engineering and maintenance field and has served as departmental financial visionary to the executive team of the organization. During her career, she has managed more than 11 million square feet of structures that included an office space, residency hall, parking garages, surface lots, food concepts and private roadways.
"I believe my extensive background in financial and facilities management along with team building and my internal drive for success will truly be an asset to LSC-Kingwood," Johnson said. "I provide a solid balance of technical expertise in conjunction with a high level of business management skill sets."
Although LSC-Kingwood will be her first professional job in education, she says her previous experience has helped groom and foster her passion in working at an educational institution.
"Through my professional career and academic journey, the passion to work for an institution of higher learning never dwindled. Education has always been an important factor in my life,” Johnson said. “This position allows me the privilege to utilize my financial management experience in conjunction with facilities management. I could not have asked for a better opportunity and I look forward to the new partnerships and opportunities that await me."
In addition to her professional experience, Johnson earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and a Master of Business Administration degree with a concentration in management from LeTourneau University. She also holds professional certifications in facilities management and telecommunications, earned a realtor's license in Texas and is a graduate of Leadership Houston Class XXXII.
