Professional

Kevin Johnston is a seasoned sales professional, business coach, entrepreneur and avid world traveller who values practical experience that goes beyond the classroom.

Kevin joined his father to start a distribution business, All-Max Distributors Ltd., at 19 years old. He led the business operations and helped secure and manage the company’s relationship with major clients. Through hard work and experience while on the job, he was instrumental in helping the family business evolve into a leading national distributor.

After working in the family business for 10 years, he transitioned into sales management within the telecommunications, advertising and transportation industries. He spent six years with Trader Publications on their senior leadership team and helped them transition from a family business culture to a corporate culture. He spent the next 12 years with AGT/TELUS/SuperPages, where he managed many sales teams, eventually becoming the Director of Sales for Alberta. As a member of the senior leadership, he was accountable for $150 million in annual revenue. He helped EDTEL transition to join SuperPages and AGT transition to TELUS.

He has managed various teams through significant growth and change, developing a passion for coaching business professionals. As a TEC Small Business Chair, Kevin facilitates his members to find solutions within themselves.
