I'm beyond excited to play a role in the evolution of Glytch," said Johnson in a press release covering the announcement.

Along with his twin brother, Johnson founded Benevolent Capital in 2005 and serves as its CEO. The platform includes a world-class group of partners, associates and investors, with a portfolio now spanning catalytic investments in venture capital, private equity, real estate development and a diverse collection of global professional soccer franchises.
