About Preston Johnson

I started my career with Thrivent in March of 2001. I decided to become an associate with Thrivent for a couple of reasons:

  1. My father worked for Thrivent for 47 years. I always respected how his clients depended on his advice. I wanted to provide that same clarity to those around me. I love that my career puts you, the client, and your needs at the forefront of every decision.
  2. Thrivent is guided by your purpose and priorities, which allows me to have a transparent relationship with you. That is the integrity and compassion I base my life around—seeing it modeled through a growing company is a breath of fresh air.

Outside of work, my life is consumed with family, fishing, golf, and my two crazy dogs. I have Charlie (a Basset Hound who is aging gracefully) and Phoenix (a Labrador Retriever puppy)—they keep me on my toes, that is for sure!

Education & Experience

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire in 1997 with a comprehensive major in Resource Management. I worked at The Wichita Eagle (newspaper) in Wichita, Kansas for 4 years before joining Thrivent.
