Celebrating the Johnson family

For the second annual Family Legacy Event we had the the great pleasure of featuring a very special father-son team from the Johnson family of SC Johnson: A Family Company. A truly inspiring business family, the Johnsons have engineered successful leadership transfers through five different generations. And as importantly, they have done so with a collective grace and wisdom. This evening represented a unique opportunity to share in some of the lessons they have learned on their journeys together.

Founded in 1886 as a manufacturer of parquet flooring, S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc. is a leading provider of innovative consumer products that make life easier and homes cleaner, safer and healthier for families around the world. SC Johnson has operations in 70 countries worldwide, employs 9,500 people and has estimated annual sales of $5 billion.

Their growth and success is the result of sophisticated market research analysis, responsive product development and creative, global marketing efforts which demonstrate their understanding of, and commitment to providing consumers the best choices to enhance the quality of their lives.

SC Johnson holds leading positions globally in 14 product categories. Customers trust them to be a key partner in helping to build their business and, as a result, they have received numerous "Vendor of the Year" awards and assignments as Category Captains to manage the retail aisles where their products are sold.
