Johnson Succeeds Nosse as ICC-ES President
The ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) Board of Directors has selected Mark Johnson to serve as the ES President, following the announcement of John Nosse’s January 2010 retirement. Johnson will assume the ES President role April 1 when Nosse will move to President Emeritus status. ICC-ES is a subsidiary of the International Code Council.
“These changes,” according to Code Council CEO Richard P. Weiland, “will assure an effective transition for a very important organization. John has built an organization whose quality is without peer, and he remains a vital and revered resource for all of us.”
“I’ve worked alongside Mark for many years,” Nosse said, “and as President Emeritus, I have the opportunity to support him in his transition to the ES presidency. We have developed a very effective working partnership, and I know Mark cares deeply about the success of ES. He respects the high quality of both our work and our staff. I am proud of what we have accomplished and know that the future is in good hands under Mark’s capable leadership.”
Johnson has worked closely in the past year with the ES organization and its customers to refine its business model. He began his career with a Code Council legacy organization, the International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO), rising from a part-time, high school shipping clerk into management, and orchestrating the makeover of its product and business development department. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.
“Mark’s skill sets, and his longtime commitment to the mission, customers, and staff at the Code Council, make Mark the ideal choice for this position,” said ES Board President Steve Regoli.
