Curtis D. Johansen
Head Coach - Information Technology
As a former U.S. Marine and U.S. Army Reserve veteran - honor, integrity, and determination is the cornerstone of my moral being. Over the past 40 years, I built multiple successful careers as a small business owner and Information Technology professional.
Born and raised in Southern California provided a great environment for learning to embrace differences from a very early age. Having enlisted U.S. Marine straight out of high school, the Corp instilled the necessary skills and leadership qualities which enabled me to build multiple small businesses. An entrepreneur for nearly two decades was as challenging as rewarding.
My passion for electronics and computers paved the way for a new adventure. I join the U.S Army Reserve and simultaneously obtained a B.S degree in Industrial Technology program from East Carolina University. I severed a year tour in Iraq assigned to the U.S. State Department. By 2012, I successfully transitioned my career into private corporate sector.
My decision to join The Variegate Group was not only based upon my experiences transitioning into the workforce in my 50’s, but the inevitable need for a diverse mindset. The fact is, the success in my life and career would not have been possible without the guidance and participation of my mother who was not only a single parent, but my business partner.
