"Although this is a very exciting transition, it is with a heavy heart that I make this announcement," explained Johnson. "I love Montana Tech and will miss the faculty, staff, alumni, and especially the students. Our team has accomplished a great deal during my time at Montana Tech and I expect that much more will be done in the future. At the same time I am thrilled by the thoughts of this new opportunity and energized by the challenges that await."

Before stepping into the administrative position at Montana Tech, Johnson served as an Assistant Professor of Business and Information Technology at Tech and served as CEO and President of ELM Locating and Utility Services in Missoula. He also worked for the Montana Power Company and Northwestern Energy. "I would like to express my deep appreciation to Mike for his service to Montana Tech and the Foundation," stated Chancellor Don Blackketter. "Although I have only known Mike a few months, it is easy to recognize the positive impact he has made on this campus. Mike has assured me that he will continue his involvement with Tech as a trusted friend of mine and valued alumnus of this campus. Vicki and I wish Kami and Mike the very best."
