Johnson will be departing for Washington, D.C. on May 6th to serve as Chief of Staff to Indiana Congressman and Vietnam Veteran Jim Baird.

“This announcement has been bittersweet,” said Johnson. “It has been my honor and privilege to serve side-by-side with the leaders of Montgomery County as we have worked to create the best community in the state of Tennessee and the region. It has been my absolute pleasure to belong to the MoCo family.” 

The community has gone through some major changes since Johnson began serving as Montgomery County Chief of Staff for County Mayor Jim Durrett in January of 2019. During his service, Johnson played an important role in finalizing the F&M Bank Arena and securing the Amazon Distribution Facility, among other initiatives. He worked on internal reforms within county departments to streamline efficiencies and strengthen the cohesiveness of the team.
While serving as Chief of Staff, Johnson served in the National Guard, participating in regular drills and exercises, where he earned the Tennessee Adjutant General’s ribbon for valor.  Johnson will graduate with his master’s degree from George Washington University this May and will begin his MBA at Georgetown University this fall.
Johnson has been actively involved in the military veteran community and the community as a whole, serving on the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) board of directors, as a guest speaker for Veterans Treatment Court, and an advocate and advisor for Campbell Strong Defense Alliance. Johnson also served as an active member of the Clarksville Rotary Club and was a consistent Medallion Member for the United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region.
“Kyle has been a valuable member of the MoCo team and of this community. He contributed immensely as Chief of Staff, collaborating with City of Clarksville leadership, the Industrial Development Board, Economic Development Council and many of our industry leaders. His professionalism and presence will be missed,” said Mayor Durrett.
The Montgomery County Government team is thankful for his contributions and wishes him the best in his future endeavors.
