Inside Sales Manager
It started as a couple of casual conversations with POSM Software co-founders Bob and Gene Katter. Soon, Derek Johnson decided he’d liked what he’d heard about the POSM product, and he especially liked its people. In March 2019, he jumped “into the deep end” of sales management, and is excited to help take POSM to the next level. “We are a tight-knit group that can make quick decisions and handle problems on the spot. This lack of bureaucracy makes it easy to prioritize customer satisfaction.”
Derek earned his Bachelor’s in Business Marketing from the University of Washington in 2000. He brings over 17 years of sales experience, including nine years with the NBA where he coordinates international basketball data to assist scouts with evaluating overseas talent. Derek continues his NBA responsibilities part-time.
Derek is an active athlete who loves sports. Not surprisingly, he played basketball in his college years. He also loves snowboarding and is a casual runner. “I’ve surfed nearly all the breaks in the US, as well as three other continents.”
Account Management and Human Resources Developer

Megan’s work experience includes over ten years in office management, including restaurants, private hunting plantations in Georgia, and most recently, a law office. Multi-tasking is one of her super powers. Megan loves the people at POSM. “I had my third baby only two months after I began working for POSM, and they sent me the prettiest flowers to the hospital. It speaks volumes when a company takes interest in its employees. From my experience, happy employees take care of the customer, and POSM strives to ensure both objectives are achieved. Honest concern for the well-being of others is rare but oh so needed."
Megan lives three hours from the coast of Florida. “I’m a bit of a beach bum. My dad taught me to surf when I was little and I enjoy watching the surfers on the Atlantic Coast. I want to enroll my eldest son in surf lessons.” She and her husband love kayaking, hiking, and biking. They homeschool their oldest child, and are active members of The Church at the Groves in Leesburg, GA. “My husband is a chef, so we consider ourselves ‘foodies.’ We love to travel to new places just to eat the food.” She is a huge Jimi Hendrix fan--two of her children bear "Hendrix" as their middle name.
