JohnstonWells Says Goodbye to GG Johnston

Goodbyes are seldom easy and JohnstonWells saying goodbye to president and CEO, GG Johnston, is no exception. For 15 years GG has been an integral part of JohnstonWells, and her contributions have been significant and numerous.

“My decision to leave JohnstonWells and venture into the world outside family business is both exciting and sad for me,” says GG Johnston. “For 15 years, I have worked alongside Gwin and the talented team at JW. I am grateful for every minute of time I’ve spent here. I am well-prepared for whatever adventures are coming my way. I’m excited about what’s next for all of us.”

Founder Gwin Johnston has been actively involved in the firm for 38 years and will step back into her former role as president and CEO at the start of the New Year. She is supported by a top-notch team of 10 employees who are committed to a seamless transition.

“I believe that everyone deserves choices and the opportunity to pursue his or her own dreams, and I support GG in pursuing hers,” says Gwin Johnston. “These are challenging times, to be sure. But I’m not daunted because I’ve managed through challenging times before and have always come out stronger. We have a terrific staff and some very exciting projects in the works. We’re looking forward to 2010.”
