About JS

Johnson Strategies is a full service consulting firm owned and operated by its President, Scott Johnson.  The firm focuses on Scott’s strengths and experience as an association executive, writer and lobbyist.  With nearly 40 years of experience in Florida’s insurance market, 37 as a lobbyist and executive for the Florida Association of Insurance Agents (FAIA), the institutional and technical knowledge required to plan complex legislative strategies, draft statutory changes and communicate with elected officials and  regulatory bodies is unsurpassed.

As a former insurance instructor for the FAIA Scott understands the technical issues behind complex insurance contracts as well as those surrounding their sale and servicing.

As a lobbyist and director of FAIA’s substantial government affairs program, he knows how to blend the realities of running a business, such as an insurance company or an insurance agency, with sensitive political considerations; while always keeping the client’s needs at the forefront.

As an experienced statutory drafter he can find solutions to complex problems for clients that are politically palatable to those who must be convinced to vote for them and still be reelected.

As an experienced public speaker and Certified Association Executive, Scott can conduct Strategic Planning Sessions for your board of directors or present to your membership on planning and achieving goals.

Scott has served on numerous government boards, committee’s or task forces, including:

  • Member Board of Governors Florida Auto Joint Underwriting Association
