After his studies at the École de Gestion et de Commerce (Business School of Management) of the AUDENCIA Group and at Longwood College in Richmond Virginia, USA, Johann left for Ukraine representing the company known as the world leader of fork-lift trucks. When he returned to France, he began working with the establishment that would later become SALVEO Group.

He created the marketing department followed by the Coordination of Services function, and then opened the SALVEO offices in Kazakhstan, before creating the Indian subsidiary of the Group in New Delhi.

After the opening of the Algerian subsidiary in 2006, Johann bought the Group with Hervé DRUART in 2007. He then continued the expansion of the Group in 2008 with the creation of a subsidiary in Canada, following with a subsidiary in Mexico in 2014.
