NVTC Mourns the Passing of Hooks Johnston

Sept. 5, 2017

"We are incredibly sad to share with you that Hooks Johnston has passed away at age 55.

Hooks served on the NVTC Board of Directors for eight years from 2004 to 2012 and was a very involved and wonderful Board member. After a successful career as a Co-Founder and General Partner of Valhalla Partners, Hooks joined the team at the Inova Center for Personalized Health as a Managing Director of Inova Strategic Investments and the Inova Personalized Health Accelerator, leading Inova’s innovation investing and development for companies that are transforming global health services.

Hooks’ exceptional leadership at NVTC and in the broader technology community will be profoundly missed. Most importantly, we will miss Hooks’ kindness and friendship.

We send our deep condolences to his wife Betsy and their children. Our thoughts and prayers are with them."

- Bobbie Kilberg, President and CEO, Northern Virginia Technology Council
