Reston, Va.—The American Society of Appraisers has named Johnnie White as its new chief executive officer.

White, a management veteran of more than 27 years, will fill the role starting April 15 when appraiser and interim CEO Lee P. Hackett steps down.

Hackett assisted the ASA Board of Governors with the search for a permanent CEO and will lend a hand during the transition as well.

"During the search process, Johnnie set himself apart by demonstrating his intellect and his outstanding leadership qualities, especially in the area of inspiring others to achieve their best with his team-building management style,” said Robert B. Morrison, 2018-19 international president of ASA.

White will be tasked with boosting the organization’s international presence and seeking out opportunities for partnerships and collaboration.

Most recently, he served as senior director of the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, managing the organization’s global affairs and assisting in planning annual events.

He is also an adjunct faculty member of Georgetown University, teaching operations and event management to graduate students.

White holds an M.B.A. from University of Maryland University College and a B.S. in Information Systems Management from the University of Maryland.

He was named one of the top 40 Trending Association Innovators in 2017 by DCA Live, a Washington, D.C.-based event honoring local professionals in a variety of fields.

White is a member of the American Society of Association Executives and the Professional Convention Management Association.
