Eric Johnson: I lost my grandmother to breast cancer and when I was asked by Charlotte Magazine over a decade ago to build a charity home, it was breast cancer that struck a chord with several members of my company. I admire Komen Charlotte because they reach into the community, find local leaders, and invite them to join Komen on their mission.
Eric S. Johnson is the President and founder of the long time, award winning, luxury home builder, E.S. Johnson Builders, based out of Davidson, NC. He has had a 25-year history of building fine custom homes in many of Charlotte’s finest communities and the Lake Norman area. In 2009, Johnson started a charity called Build for the Cure to benefit Komen Charlotte. Mr. Johnson called upon his craftsman, suppliers, friends and vendors to assist him in creating homes with the goal to raise funds to assist Komen Charlotte’s mission. Through product and labor donations, Johnson’s building community has now built six homes and raised hundreds of thousands in charitable giving to help those effected by breast cancer.
