After serving as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) San Francisco District’s South Section Chief for five years Cameron founded JMC in October of 2013. JMC's portfolio has grown to include both private and public sector projects ranging from individual private property to large infrastructure projects. JMC has proven the ability to navigate California's complicated regulatory requirements to facilitate project authorizations.

During federal tenure, Cameron’s primary responsibilities included management of the South Branch regulatory program (San Francisco to Paso Robles). Work included supervision of an interdisciplinary team with a primary goal of processing permit applications in accordance with USACE’s authority. The program included management of several hundred permit applications per year (between 300-500) ranging in scope from thousands to millions of dollars in capital construction costs. Working with USACE gave Mr. Johnson the opportunity to serve as a commissioner on the Bay Conservation and Development Commission for a two-year period. As Section Chief, Cameron's goal was to manage a team to ensure consistency, fairness, and efficiently in the regulatory program.

​Prior to his work with USACE Cameron worked as a Project Manager for ECORP Consulting for six years. During this time Cameron was responsible for the development of projects from initial due-diligence through final permit entitlement and construction. Projects included a wide range from small residential development to large scale Specific Plans (in excess of 5,000 acres). Permit applications were prepared in accordance with the Clean Water Act, Federal and State Endangered Species Acts, Porter-Colonge Act, California Fish and Game Codes, Coastal Zone Management Act Consistency Determinations, as well as local requirements. Working with project engineers, local planning departments, federal and state agency and project proponents to develop the most efficient and legally defensible projects possible, and to balance the project needs and schedule with the environmental constraints unique to each project.
