Johnson has enjoyed a successful career of founding and cultivating successful companies. The companies he has founded currently exceed $1 billion in valuations. His most recent success, direct-to-consumer dental aligner company, Byte, sold to Dentsply Sirona in early 2020 for $1.04 billion. The venture was entirely conceptualized and funded by Johnson, who credits the Webb Schools for teaching him to think, lead, and consider the consequences of every decision he makes. This line of thinking has led to impactful philanthropic endeavors from Johnson. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Johnson made the decision to transition their aligner production to personal protective equipment for frontline health workers. In addition, he supports Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the Boy Scouts of America (Johnson himself is an Eagle Scout), the International Justice MIssion, and MOCA Los Angeles. He has also been a consistent supporter of the Webb Schools for more than 20 years.

In 2015, Johnson founded The Blake Johnson Alliance, a grant-issuing philanthropic organization that seeks to advance education, arts, sciences, and social well-being.

"I am honored by this recognition," said Johnson, "My experience at The Webb Schools shaped my entire personal and professional life. I am immensely grateful for the education I received there, and hope that the success I have been fortunate enough to enjoy can serve to inspire the next generation of graduates."
