Keith is the Founder and CEO for Petbrosia, Inc, a start-up company poised to revolutionize how people care for their pets. Through June 2012, Keith Johnson was the Marketing and Business Team Leader for P&G’s NA Professional business unit, which shined as the fastest growing division of P&G. As acting “COO” of the $500M business with 200+ personnel, he was responsible for all functional activities to support current business operations and assuring a glide-path of growth. Keith was the Global Brand Manager for the $1.5B IAMS business from 2008-2010. In that role, he led the first major product upgrade and global commercialization since P&G bought the brand in 1999, resulting in the first years of volume, revenue, and profit growth since 2005. Keith joined the Procter & Gamble Company in 1994 and has worked on consumer brands, such as Tide®, Dawn®, Always®, Tampax®, and IAMS®. He has had various functional roles while with P&G, including engineering, program management, initiative success, and brand management. He has had operational assignments around the world, including Italy and Japan. Before P&G, Keith worked at DuPont as a mechanical engineer. In 2011, he received an MBA with Honors from the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business with concentrations in Strategy, Entrepreneurship, International Business, and Finance.
