BOB JOHNS - EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT
E-Mail: Robert "Bob" Johns
Bob grew up in the Chicago area and though he was engaged in music through high school was a late-comer to barbershop. While singing in a local (non-registered) quartet in Arkansas he got the bug and when he and his wife moved to Charlotte, NC he joined Charlotte’s Gold Standard Chorus late in 2001. Bob has sung both bass and bari in quartets (back to bass and fully recovered from the bari experience) and currently sings in the Hickory based Antics quartet and with Hickory’s Carolina Moonlighters.
Bob graduated from the University of Illinois and worked in the steel industry for more than 40 years, retiring from Nucor Corporation in 2007. When he retired he was Director of Marketing for Nucor’s sheet mill group but was actually more involved with international trade and government relations issues.
Bob is currently the Membership VP for the Moonlighters. His tongue in cheek job description as Carolinas District EVP is “Denny’s go-fer.”
Bob and his wife Margie live in Granite Falls, NC. They have two grown children – daughter Kim who lives in Maiden, NC and son Rob who is in the process of completing a job assignment in the Netherlands and will relocate to Atlanta mid-year 2012.
