PresidentEmail Johnny Slaughter
Johnny Slaughter joined Cotton Commercial USA, Inc. in 2001 as a project manager and, since then, has been instrumental in Cotton’s growth and the expansion of services. As the company grew, so did Mr. Slaughter’s responsibilities at Cotton. After two years as a project manager, he was promoted to General Manager, then Regional Manager, followed by Vice President of Operations for Cotton’s Integrated Services Division, a division that worked primarily with international and government projects.
In 2011, after Cotton responded and provided temporary housing to a large oil spill site, Mr. Slaughter was tasked with launching a new logistics division that could provide operational support and workforce housing to clients. Cotton Logistics officially launched in 2012, with Mr. Slaughter as Executive Vice President, and in 2016, he was named President of Cotton Logistics. As President, Mr. Slaughter has led the development of his division, which now includes workforce housing, temporary facilities, culinary services, and emergency response solutions. He is actively involved and oversees the progress of workforce housing camps from initial concept to camp commission and the eventual decommissioning of each camp.
With his results-driven leadership style and innovative thinking, Mr. Slaughter has successfully opened Cotton offices in Houston, Austin, Denver, Louisiana, and West Texas. In addition to launching Cotton Logistics, Mr. Slaughter has played an important role in launching other Cotton divisions, such as Cotton Culinary and Cotton’s environmental division.
Slaughter earned his Bachelor of Business Administration from Sam Houston State University in 1993.
He and his wife reside in Katy, Texas.
