NASHVILLE, Tenn. — XOi Technologies welcomed David Johnson, previously the global chief information officer at JLL, as the newest member of its board of directors. Johnson will draw on more than 30 years of facilities management, real estate services, and technology leadership experience to bring fresh insights to XOi’s business strategies.

“We are delighted to have David join our board,” said Aaron Salow, CEO, XOi Technologies. “He is a true technology leader in the commercial real estate and facilities management industry with experience in finding and leveraging industry-disrupting technology. XOi will greatly benefit from his vision and experience.”

Johnson spent 21 years at JLL, serving as the firm’s global CIO for the past 13 years. As a member of the senior executive leadership team, Johnson helped grow JLL from a mid-sized, private company to a Fortune 500 global leader with over 4.6 billion square feet under its management, and more than 80,000 employees across 80 plus countries. Prior to JLL, Johnson held financial, operations, and technology management roles in the real estate and banking industries, for Ernst & Young, Price Waterhouse, and Chase Manhattan Bank.

“I know good software when I see it," said Johnson. "I appreciate XOi’s focus on delivering technology that empower field service technicians do their jobs more efficiently and helps companies solve for the skilled trades gap. I have a lot of respect for blue collar workers—they don’t get enough credit and their jobs are hard. I also believe the data management and embedded AI in XOi Vision™ will enable real estate managers and owners to more effectively manage the facilities in their portfolios.”
