Meet Sherwin G. Johnson Jr.
Chief Vision Officer – EVO Bahamas & The Bahamas Nightlife
Sherwin, or Jughead as he is known, came to disrupt the glass ceiling that is Bahamian business culture. From an early age Sherwin knew that he wanted to make a difference.
Born to Judy and Sherwin Sr. on April 21st, 1986, Sherwin grew up on the island of New Providence with his siblings and family like most normal carib families. He is a proud alumnus of The Bahamas Government High School where his self identification journey begun.
At an early age Sherwin identified what he wanted to do with his life, which was helping people. He understood his purpose and began his work with Bahamas Faith Ministries and Dr. Myles Munroe.
Over the course of many years Sherwin has helped many companies build, identify and grow to the successes you know them as today. Being the creative that he is, the idea of The Bahamas Nightlife was born. Actually, he was just bored one night and didn’t have anything to do.
Sherwin’s goal is to use The Bahamas Nightlife’s platform to firstly reintroduce The Bahamas to Bahamians and introduce Bahamian businesses to the world while empowering them to become better business owners and create better products.
Although he faced many challenges, his persistence shines through and is a testament to all those watching.
His motto is “I don’t just want an opportunity, I want to create opportunities”. Sherwin spends his time encouraging new business owners and educating them on what to expect. He is the President of Young Entrepreneurs of The Bahamas and hopes that he can leave a legacy of effective economy growth and empowerment.
