Chief Executive Officer
Bryan Johnson received his Associates of Arts (AA) degree in Business Administration from CW Post. However, a series of bad choices landed him a 7 ½ year prison sentence. After being released, he ran into challenges securing gainful employment. Over a period of time, Mr. Johnson worked in various industries being overworked and underpaid. Time after time he was told “no” or “we don’t hire felons”. These negative job seeking experiences and low wage paying jobs were the driving force that motivated Mr. Johnson to become interested in the judicially served population. After much exploration, he knew that he had to help that demographic by doing something to make a difference in their lives; he had to impact recidivism. Mr. Johnson began praying about the matter and received instruction from God to open up opportunities of gainful employment for others. He set out to learn as much as he could about the staffing industry and even worked for a staffing company. Later, Johnson’s Second Chance Staffing was born!
