Scentsy today announced that Chris Johnson has been promoted to chief technology officer, succeeding Ernie Satterthwait, who is retiring in December.
Johnson has been with Scentsy for over eight years. He has served as vice president of IT Applications and vice president of IT Operations and Enterprise Architect.
In his new role, Johnson will guide the vision, strategy and mission of the IT department. He will also oversee the ongoing planning and development for all software solutions, including the Consultant Workstation, Personal Websites, Back Office, SAP, business objects and more as technology tools and products change with the company.
“This succession plan is two years in the making and was not a sudden change,” said Scentsy Co-CEO Heidi Thompson. “Chris brings a depth and breadth of experience from his development background. He is recognized in his field as a thought leader who researches and publishes leadership and technical articles on a regular basis. He has been a tremendous asset to Scentsy, and we are excited for him in his new role.”
