Huntington Hospital Announces New Chairman of the Board

First published in the Feb. 9 print issue of the Pasadena Outlook.

Huntington Hospital announced that current board member Paul Johnson has been appointed as the new chairman of the board of directors. Johnson has served on Huntington’s board since 2013, and, in 2019, he became a lifetime trustee of the hospital. He replaces the previous board chairman Jaynie Studenmund and will serve a four-year term.
“I’m pleased to welcome Paul Johnson into this leadership role on our board of directors,” said Dr. Lori J. Morgan, president and CEO of Huntington Health. “Paul’s outstanding leadership skills and knowledge of our hospital makes him a faithful champion for advancing local care. Our mission to ensure the highest level of healthcare to the community, today and into the future, will be seamlessly upheld under Paul’s expert guidance.”
Johnson is currently the managing director of Paul Conrad LLC, an early-stage technology investment company and a strategic advisory service for high-potential mid-sized businesses, startups and investment groups. He also serves on the boards of multiple technology startups and private equity-backed companies.
Additionally, he is the president and director of the Gesner-Johnson Foundation, which provides support to nonprofits that serve the underserved in our communities. The foundation has also contributed significantly to Huntington Hospital.
“I look forward to leading this board of professionals and community leaders, many of whom I’ve had the honor of working with for nearly a decade,” Paul Johnson said. “Together we remain committed to Huntington’s vision and mission to provide excellent healthcare and compassionate care to our community.”
He has also held management positions in marketing and strategic planning at leading consumer packaged-goods companies, including Nestlé, Conagra and Chiquita. From 1999-2012, he was president and CEO of Kelley Blue Book, where he led the transformation from a regional printed trade publishing guide into a diversified data research company and the most recognized consumer automotive internet portal in the country.
He received his bachelor’s degree in economics from Whitman College and his MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
