Richard Childress Racing has named Robin Johnson as its new Vice President of Business Development to oversee sponsorship sales and partnership expansion, effective immediately.
Johnson brings more than 20 years of combined legal and business development leadership to the multi-championship NASCAR team. He most recently served as the General Counsel for the S.C. State Treasurer’s Office. Prior to that position, the South Carolina native served in similar business development roles at Front Row Motorsports and Roush Fenway Racing, where he helped build what was arguably one of the most respected sponsorship bases in professional sports during his tenure.
“We are very happy to have Robin join our team because he brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to our organization,” said Torrey Galida, President of RCR. “We are confident he will be a major contributor to our mission in keeping RCR as one of NASCAR’s premier racing teams, both on the track and in the marketplace.”
Johnson is an honor graduate of The Citadel (class of 1986) earning his B.S. degree in business administration. He is also an honor graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law and is licensed in South Carolina and New York.
“I have always admired Richard Childress and his organization, and have marveled at how his team members, business associates and partners are genuinely considered as family,” Johnson said. “I’m truly honored and look forward to introducing new partners to the RCR family.”
Robin is married to Emily Linder Johnson of Bennettsville, SC, and they have three children – Erin, Lachlan and Jake.
