Pursuing Excellence for All Time
In its 80th year, Johnson Roofing is a full-service roofing company, serving residential and commercial customers, primarily on the I-35 corridor. Sherri Johnson McDonald is the third-generation president and CEO of the company, following her dad, Bill Johnson, and his parents, Margaret and Jack Johnson. The family-owned company remains headquartered on the Johnson family ranch, JMB Appaloosa Ranch, southeast of Waco.
In 2015, Sherri took the reins at Johnson Roofing, following her dad’s example. “He taught me to treat people the way you want to be treated, to remove obstacles so the team can get the job done with excellence, and to make sure the team is safe every day,” she said.
Under Sherri’s leadership the company launched Johnson Roofing University in 2017 to provide the team with the tools to gain knowledge and advance their careers. In 2019, the company’s North Texas Regional Office opened. This year Sherri relaunched Johnson Roofing Management, an expanded service and maintenance program, and she opened the South Texas Regional Office.
Sherri says the examples set by her family prepared her to run Johnson Roofing. “Our company tagline, ‘Pursuing Excellence,’ sums it up,” she said. “Whether it’s roofing or horse competitions, I was taught to do it to the very best of my ability.”
Ranching, horse competitions and auctions have been a huge part of Sherri’s life. She grew up teaching horseback riding and competing on her Appaloosas. Her dad was a premiere horseman in the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s, winning the championship trophy at the National Cutting Horse Futurity. Sherri continues to compete in team roping, ranch sorting and team penning.
Looking at the future, Sherri says she and her team are focused on continued excellence, maintaining the company’s Tier 1 status, and providing quality work for the smallest and biggest projects.
