Wayne Johnson, Co-Founder and CEO


Wayne Johnson

Wayne Johnson

Co-Founder and CEO

Wayne has won recognition as an entrepreneur and leader in the information industry. He has raised venture capital in the USA and won multi-million dollar grants from government. Putting capital to work, Wayne founded Software Associates in 1986 and served as CEO and chairman until the company was acquired by QHA, a Hong Kong listed Company in 2001. Software Associates grew to 60 staff with offices in the US, and Hong Kong. With a focus on enterprise integration, Software Associates successfully built and deployed major applications including telecommunications billing, Internet banking and corporate-wide customer care for the region’s major banks, insurers and telecommunications companies.

Roger Carson

Roger Carson

Co-Founder & Global Financial Sales Director

Since co-founding the company in 2010, Roger shapes and advances global sales strategy at Encompass Corporation. He drives growth of our customer base by engaging channel partners and leading the company’s experienced and ambitious sales team. Roger’s passion inspires our team to make Encompass the platform of choice for professionals who work with commercial information.

Since meeting Wayne Johnson in 1991, they have partnered to establish a number of successful businesses. Roger has also created his own ventures, including 2M Services – a provider of corporate sales and support capability throughout Asia for early stage US technology vendors.

Roger has built a career in the technology business. After completing his Bachelor of Business in Finance, he gained extensive experience with multinational firms including Accenture, Unisys (South Africa and Australia) and BEA Systems.

The genesis of the Encompass platform was in a personal involvement with a large property development project. His experience in being unable to immediately access to accurate information that he needed stimulated the seed of an idea. He and Wayne together envisioned a solution that would quickly inform him of the people, property and companies related to the project in question. Developed to fill this gap, Encompass highlights risks and opportunities. Using the plethora of data now available in the marketplace, Encompass will highlight valuable information needed to make sound commercial decisions.

Away from work, Roger enjoys golf, squash, swimming and travel. His keen interest in world affairs is informed by experience of living in the US, South Africa, Hong Kong and Australia.
