Randall Johnson

Executive Director, Southeastern Office for the North Carolina Biotech Center; NCEDA president

As the executive director of the lo­cal Biotech Center, Johnson calls himself a “big consumer of news” meaning he checks publications on a regular basis. That includes the Greater Wilmington Busi­ness Journal, StarNews, News and Observer, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Business NC, The Economist and more. For pleasure, he enjoys Our State, Wake Forest Magazine and Boating Magazine.
 
Favorite websites and blogs Johnson regularly checks for work or pleasure include NCEDA.org, NCBiotech.org, NCBioneer.com and Ra­dioParadise.com.
 
“I love to watch classic movies on TCM, a wide range of most sports from rugby to tennis to hockey, HBO’s Last Week Tonight, Sein­feld reruns and Food Network cooking shows with my family,” Johnson said. “My wife and I binge-watched Ozark on Netflix over the summer and can hardly wait for season 4.”
 
Favorite authors include Malcolm Gladwell, Daniel Pink, as well as fiction authors Milan Kundera, Saul Bellow and Ernest Heming­way.
 
“I also love the writ­ings of poets, such as Sharon Olds, Charles Simic, Mary Oliver and Wallace Stevens. Right now, I’m reading Zorba the Greek and Listening to Design.”
 
Often-used apps include Zoom and SeeSaw.
