KEVIN JOHNSON

PRESIDENT & CEO, SUNCOAST CREDIT UNION, TAMPA

Suncoast Credit Union, with more than $10.8 billion in assets, is the largest credit union in Florida, the eighth-largest in the United States based on membership, and the 10th-largest in the U.S.

With some 1,800 employees, it operates 70 full-service branches in 22 counties with plans to expand into additional Florida counties.

The firm’s employees, Johnson says, volunteered more than 32,000 hours of service in their communities in 2019. Johnson has been president and CEO since 2016.

EDUCATION University of Tampa (BS)
SOMETHING SURPRISING I am a bit of an adventure thrill-seeker. My wife and I have walked with polar bears in northern Canada, gorillas in Rwanda and heli-hiked a glacier in New Zealand. In addition to bungee jumping, skydiving and paragliding, I have also run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
FLORIDA ISSUE Education. Growing the hearts and minds of children who will be the future leaders cannot be overlooked. As a credit union founded by teachers who needed financial products and services that better served their unique needs and budgets, we will always be a champion of education.
ALTERNATE CAREER? I initially started with a pursuit of an accounting degree.
PHILANTHROPIC PASSION The Suncoast Credit Union Foundation has donated more than $25 million to promote the health, education and well-being of children in the counties we serve.
