Century Ambulance is adding a key member to its leadership team, hiring Matthew Johnson as the company’s General Manager effective May 1. Matthew has spent the past 25 years in the ambulance industry including 10 years and counting in Florida emergency medical services. He brings a wealth of business development insight to a growing Century team operating in the North Florida region, stretching from Jacksonville to Panama City with continued expansion on the horizon.
“There are a lot of professional development opportunities at Century and I’m excited to help employees take advantage and expand their careers,” Matthew said. “Century has a great reputation and I’m excited to join the team.”
While Matthew has worked across the country, he entered the Florida EMS community in 2007 in the state’s southeast region. After spending six years as the Chief Operating Officer for Medics Ambulance Service in Deerfield Beach, Matthew transitioned to General Manager at American Ambulance in Broward County, a position he held until his move to Century.
Matthew got his start in EMS as a paramedic and began his leadership career in 1992 as the Market General Manager for Southwest Ambulance in Mesa, Arizona. In 2004, he transferred to Columbus, Ohio to serve as District General Manager for Rural/Metro Corporation, his last professional stop prior to the move to Florida.
An avid waterman, Matthew spends much of his free time enjoying the ocean via surfing and elite paddle board racing. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Business at University of Phoenix.
Please welcome Matthew to the Century team!
