January 30, 2017 (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – United Country Real Estate has named Scott Johnson as its new parent company Chief Financial Officer. Johnson will oversee all financial operations for United Country Real Estate as well as its sister company, United Real Estate.

Johnson, who most recently led the FP&A group at Interstate Batteries, a multi-billion dollar privately-held distributor of automotive batteries, will report to Dan Duffy, United’s chief executive officer.  As their CFO, Johnson will be responsible for leading the enterprise accounting and financial operations out of United Real Estate’s headquarters in Dallas, Texas.

“We enthusiastically welcome Scott to the growing United family. United and its affiliated companies have continued to demonstrate year over year growth and scale that now requires we invest in additional financial leadership,” said Dan Duffy, CEO of United Real Estate Group.  “Scott is a pragmatic and collaborative finance leader with a deep track record of extensive public and private organizational experience; this will greatly benefit United and its affiliates as we continue the journey of building the best and largest real estate companies in the markets we serve.”

Before joining United, Johnson spent the past five years leading the planning and analysis team at Interstate Batteries in Dallas.  Interstate Batteries is a $2 billion privately-held distributor of aftermarket automotive batteries to both OEM National accounts and independent automotive repair dealers.  During his tenure at Interstate, Johnson focused on building the financial decision-support capabilities of the organization. 

Prior to Interstate Batteries, Johnson spent twelve years at PepsiCo / Frito-Lay in Plano, Texas.  During his tenure at PepsiCo, he held several financial leadership roles in strategy, pricing and marketing mix, field sales finance, and customer and supplier risk.  He also spent four years as treasurer /controller for Edwin L. Cox Companies and prior to that spent six years in public accounting at both Ernst & Young and Coopers & Lybrand with a focus on real estate, banking and financial services.

Johnson has an MBA in Finance from Southern Methodist University, a BBA in Accounting from University of Texas at Arlington and holds his CPA in Texas.

Scott and his family call Frisco, Texas home.
