“We are thrilled to honor this year’s class of women business leaders. This was one of the most competitive groups in the nine year history of our Women Who Mean Business program, and we are proud to shine a spotlight on a diverse group of executives who are creating both jobs and prosperity here in the greater Washington region," said Alex Orfinger, publisher of the Washington Business Journal.

Ms. Johnson founded RP3 Agency in 2009 with two partners after having helped build The Dan Rosenthal Company (later Rosenthal Partners) for 15 years.
