Our Team

Sita Johnson

Founder & President

Sita has served the boards and company secretariat, marketing, and sales of some of the most respected companies in the world, including Revlon, Reckitt Benckiser, and CEMEX. She holds a Master of Business Administration degree; Legal and Finance.

 

Sita is equally proud of her East Indian Sikh heritage, being the third generation of her family born in Kenya, and her upbringing in London, United Kingdom. She has come a long way from the plains of East Africa and considers herself truly at home in America now, along with her British sensibility and etiquette, of course.

 

Sita now resides in Jacksonville, North Carolina, the hometown of her husband and co-founder, Ed Johnson.


One of Sita’s proudest accomplishments is the iconic RhinoWare brand itself. She found inspiration for the branding from her passion for wildlife conservation in Africa. And so the journey began for RhinoWare and the development of our Safe@School Fundraising Program that compliments the most effective anti-threat solution in the market at present.

 

“It’s been a long and hard journey, but the passion that exudes from everyone that is touched by our ‘Rhinos’ is extraordinary.”
