Johnson is responsible for sales and merchandising activities for the world-wide military market, including commissaries, exchanges, ship’s stores and veterans’ canteens. Most recently, he was SVP of the Acosta Commissary Division. While in that role, he served a 15-month tour of duty with the U.S. Navy, including nearly 12 months in Afghanistan. Johnson has more than 25 years of global experience in the military channel serving as a commissary unit manager, commissary region manager and VP of exchange field sales. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Gettysburg College and a MBA from the College of William and Mary. Johnson has been active in the American Logistics Association and served as a board member.

Johnson succeeds Boyd Raines, who is retiring Nov. 30 with nearly 25 years of experience in the military trade channel. Under Raines’ leadership, the Acosta Military Division has doubled in the last seven years.

As president of ADW Acosta, Cohenour will be responsible for the division’s complete operations, including sales, income and profit. Acosta created the ADW division in 2014 following the acquisition of Anderson Daymon Worldwide to source, develop and sell products and services that provide quality and value to Costco club members both domestically and internationally. Previously, Cohenour served as EVP of ADW Acosta and EVP of Daymon Worldwide. He also served as president and GM of Daymon Interactions, a consumer experience marketing company. He holds a master’s of science degree from California State University.

Cohenour succeeds Moe Krabbe, who is retiring at the end of November. Krabbe previously served as CEO of Anderson Daymon Worldwide and group VP of Daymon Worldwide’s western region. Krabbe has provided invaluable leadership to establish the ADW Acosta Division over the past two years, according to Acosta.
